Sad news today for the family of Jennifer Huston. The body of the missing mother of two was discovered almost two weeks after she disappeared, along with her SUV, near a dirt road on private property.
Jennifer Huston, 38, was best known to her family and friends as a dedicated wife and mother. When she disappeared without a trace on July 24 her husband, Kallen Huston, publicly pleaded for her to return home to their family. Unfortunately, her body was discovered about 30 minutes from where she lived with her husband and their two children, ages 2 and 6, in Dundee, Oregon. So sad.
Jennifer Huston’s Body Discovered After Missing For 12 Days
It was the news no one in Jennifer’s family wanted to hear: her body has been found.
On the morning of Aug. 5, Vern Clemmers discovered a green Lexus SUV on a secondary driveway on his private property. When he told his wife, Charlotte Clemmers, about the mysterious SUV parked on their land, she claims she knew exactly who it belonged to and immediately called the police.
Jennifer’s body was discovered about 50 yards away from her SUV on Vern’s private property wearing the same clothes she was described to be wearing when she went missing. Police do not believe any foul play was involved in Jennifer’s death.
Vern told a FOX 12 reporter that he believed Jennifer’s car had been there for several days before he found it because the grass she drove over to get onto his property no longer looked disturbed. He also confirmed that the driveway was blocked off by a rope that was still in place, which leads him to believe Jennifer may have opened the rope to drive through and then closed it off again so that no one would notice.
Jennifer leaves behind her husband, Kallen, and their two sons ages 2 and 6. So sad.
Jennifer May Have Purchased Pills Before Vanishing
The timeline surrounding Jennifer’s disappearance is very clear up until a certain point. She originally left her home to run errands, and 30 minutes later a surveillance video filmed her filling her gas tank at a Circle K gas station.
Another surveillance video showed Jennifer entering a Rite-Aid near her home, which is where she allegedly purchased three things: Gatorade, a package of trail mix and over-the-counter sleeping pills, reports CBS News.
However, the report claims that Jennifer allegedly bought a non-lethal dosage of pills.
Police have yet to confirm how Jennifer died, but autopsy results are expected to be revealed in just a few days.
Our thoughts go out to Jennifer’s husband, children, and additional family and friends at this difficult time.
