Body found in Falls County could be missing Fort Worth woman


Authorities believe a body found in the trunk of a car in Falls County, could be a woman who has been missing from the Fort Worth area since June.

Adrian Denise Thornton has been missing since June 1. Last month, her ID, personal property and money were found alongside the north side of Highway 7, just west of Marlin. The items had been set on fire.

A passerby saw a car off Highway 7 and County Road 414 and called police. When deputies arrived, they found a decomposed body in the trunk of a 1997 Lincoln Town Car, which was Thornton's car that had been missing as well.

The body has been sent to Dallas for identification.

UPDATE: This case will be handled by Fort Worth Police and the Falls County Sheriff's Department says a further examination of Thornton's home in Fort Worth by police seems to show that she may have been killed there.

Police believe Thornton and her car were then transported to Falls County and dumped on the rural road.
