New details possible in missing person's case

FANNIN COUNTY - Human skeletal remains which could be related to the case of a missing Fannin County resident have been sent for forensic testing.

A landowner in the southern portion of the county located the bones last week, and authorities suspect they could be those of 47-year-old Jack Randall Morris, who was last seen in Bonham in August 2009.

Morris was reported to have taken his son’s pickup truck that day to Cotton Center but the vehicle was later found abandoned along the roadside with its driver side door open. An extensive search turned up no sign of Morris. 

The remains found last week were located not far from where authorities searched nearly a year and a half ago.
