Another headstrong princess taken away from us too soon.
Given the information provided, what are the odds that her children are the same race as her?
Not high, says I.
The skeletal remains of a missing woman were found Wednesday morning and a man is now facing homicide charges.
Heather Short, 46, disappeared Nov. 10, 2018. She leaves behind three children.
Detectives identified Dale Cooper, 36, as the person responsible for Short’s death.
Cooper told investigators he and Short were doing drugs together at a home in West Mifflin on Nov. 7 and when he woke up, Short was gone, detectives said.
According to the criminal complaint, a witness told investigators that Cooper allegedly murdered Short by strangling her with an extension cord inside the West Mifflin home. The witness told investigators Cooper put her clothes into a piece of plastic and doused her with bleach.
According to the complaint, Cooper loaded her body into a vehicle and then dumped it in a wooded area along Scott Haven Road in Sewickley Township, Westmoreland County.
Cooper allegedly told witnesses he had to kill her because he was afraid she was going to tell a drug dealer that he had robbed the dealer of drugs and cash.
Graham said Short has known Cooper for years and she turned to street drugs after she suffered from serious health and medical problems since she was a child.
