      SAN ANTONIO — Garden Ridge police confirmed at 3:45 p.m. Thursday that a body found in Garden Ridge earlier in the afternoon was that of Leanne Bearden, the woman who had been missing for more than three weeks.

      Investigators said a man discovered the body at 12:18 p.m. in a wooded area behind his home.

      Police were able to confirm it was Bearden by her backpack and ID. Investigators would not say whether they were looking for a suspect in Bearden’s death.

      The body was found in the 21600 block of Fairview Circle, just a few blocks from Bearden’s in-laws’ home, where she was last seen before going for a run, family members said.

      Greg Pyles, CEO of Texas Search and Rescue, said the area that Bearden’s body was found was not included in a large scale, 23-square-mile search that took place in Garden Ridge Jan. 25. Pyles said the body was found in a neighborhood that searchers understood had already been covered by the family.

      Leanne was missing for almost a month. In that period of time … IN THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION … was Josh considered a person of interest by investigators? Did Josh submit to a polygraph? If not; why not?

      I could be wrong but … it appears that the last known person CONFIRMED by LE spokespersons to have seen Leanne has been given a virtual pass.
