Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Car and remains of Auburn student missing since 1976 found in Alabama creek”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The search for an Auburn University student who never made it back to campus after winter break in 1976 is over.

Kyle Clinkscales was 22 when he was last seen Jan. 27, 1976, leaving his hometown of La Grange, Ga. His car was found Tuesday in an Alabama creek, police announced.

The creek was not far from Interstate 85, which connects La Grange to Auburn, about 40 miles apart across the Alabama-Georgia state border. But police do not think Clinkscales’ death was an accident, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

In 2005, a man named Jimmy Earl Jones confessed to moving Clinkscales’ body shortly after he was killed, cops told reporters at the time. Jones spent just over five years in prison after pleading guilty to making false statements to police. He was released in 2013.

But police never named a killer in Clinkscales’ case and never determined his cause of death. Of course, it didn’t help that his remains weren’t found until Tuesday.
