Missing car still uncovered in creek – Deep mud impedes efforts by three dive teams

Authorities continue searching for the missing 2012 silver Nissan Altima, last seen driven by the late Emily Wade on Jan. 5, which remains unfound. The expired body of the 38-year old Ennis resident turned up on Jan. 21 in Chambers Creek. Still lost is the vehicle which belongs to her mother, Shirley Wade. From Kentucky, she was visiting the area at the time of the mishap. Reports that the car was located and was seen placed on a trailer were only rumors. Dallas County Medical Examiners autopsy and toxicology results confirmed Wade died after succumbing to the frigid elements of both the flood waters and the 37 degree temperature that evening. The evidence clearly revealed her cause of death was hypothermia, which was confirmed by the presence of Wischnewski (gastric) lesions in her stomach. That and vertical claw marks in the tall, muddy bank point to her struggling just prior to her system shutting down. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
