Highway Patrol Confirms Body Is Adriaunna Horton's

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Aug 23, 2013

The Highway Patrol is now confirming what a grieving father already knew: a body found in a wooded area near Golden City does belong to Adriaunna Horton.

The 12-year-old was last seen Monday getting into a vehicle. The driver, a man who used to work with Adriaunna's dad, is in jail.

Bobby Bourne Jr. already faces kidnapping charges. More charges may be announced during a news conference at the Barton County Ambulance Headquarters in Lamar at 1:30 this afternoon.
