SHARE AFTER 15 YEARS, BODY IDENTIFIED AS MISSING BOY

For nearly 15 years, Gulliermo Sauceda Jr. lay unidentified in an Elmore County grave until dental records recently cleared up the mystery of the long-missing Paul boy.

On Aug. 31, he would have turned 30.Junior disappeared on July 4, 1980.

Last month, police said the John Doe body that has lain in an Elmore County grave since July 1980 is the son of Gulliermo and Maria Antonia Sauceda.

Junior`s body was pulled out of the Snake River near Glenns Ferry on July 6, 1980. He had been killed execution-style, shot twice in the back of the head and three times in the heart.

Because the body had been so decimated by the gunshots and decomposition in the river, Junior`s family was not able to identify him.

In March 1994, police requested a copy of Junior's dental records to compare with a skull found in the Glenns Ferry area.

The X-rays did not match the skull, but matched those of the murder victim found in the river in 1980.

Investigators have few leads in the 15-year-old homicide.
