The body of a Tucson woman who disappeared in 2000 has been found, and the medical examiner has determined she was slain, according to a news release issued Monday by the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators are tight-lipped about the case, which has a connection to a 2003 double homicide in Tucson. They would not reveal when or where Linda Watson's remains were found or how long they have been at the office of the Pima County Medical Examiner.

Watson, 35, disappeared after a friend drove her home from a Sunday night church service in August 2000. After Watson failed to pick up her daughter from the home of her ex-husband the next day, sheriff's detectives investigated. They discovered the door to Watson's home, in the 2600 block of West Curtis Road, was unlocked. Inside they found spilled coffee and a shattered mug as well as traces of Watson's blood.

Left behind were Watson's car, pager, Bible and purse.

After Watson's disappearance, her mother, Marilyn Cox, 63, took her former son-in-law to court and won the right to unsupervised visitation with her young granddaughter. However, two months after Cox - as well as the little girl's paternal grandmother - were granted unsupervised visitation with the then 6-year-old, Cox was gunned down in the driveway of her daughter's home where she had been living. Also killed in the drive-by shooting was her neighbor, RéNee Farnsworth, 53. The homicides remain unsolved.

Officials declared Watson dead in 2006.

It could be weeks before Pima County sheriff's detectives are prepared to release details about when and where Watson's remains were discovered or the manner of her death, said Sgt. Dawn Barkman, a department spokeswoman.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
