In the spring of 1991, a young woman named Carey Mae Parker went missing from the Lake Tawakoni area of northeast Texas. Her disappearance devastated a family and still hasn’t been solved. But there’s something unusual about Carey’s case. After years without answers, family members made a shocking discovery: Police had never investigated. For nearly 20 years, no search was conducted, and no one was questioned. And Carey isn’t the only one missing.
Buried is a production of KETR, the public radio station for northeast Texas. Reporter George Hale has been following the family of Carey Mae Parker as they pursue the truth about her disappearance, and about some of the people who let it happen. Starting this fall, KETR will be taking a hard look at how law enforcement in northeast Texas tackles crime against our most vulnerable citizens.
