Human remains found near Alpine as search for Zuzu Verk continues

Fierro says the arrest is related to last fall's disappearance of Sul Ross State University junior ZuZu Verk of Fort Worth.

Alpine police found the unidentified remains in Sunny Glen, the same town where Zuzu Verk was last seen before she vanished, The Dallas Morning News reported. Officials have said it may take a couple days for any identification to be made. "We will continue to update as circumstances develop".

Police on Saturday arrested the boyfriend of a missing Keller woman after what are believed to be her skeletal remains were found.

A U.S. Border patrol agent around 10 a.m. Friday came across the grave while servicing equipment and phoned the Brewster County Sheriff's Office, according to the newspaper. According to family members and friends, she had a date with her on-again off-again boyfriend Fabian the night of the 11th.


Alpine is a city in West Texas with a population of about 6,000 residents.

Yesterday evening, the Texas Rangers arrived on scene to process evidence as well.

Police say Fabian refused to answer questions about the last night Verk was seen, and he and a friend, Chris Estrada, were acting unusual in the days after her disappearance. She went missing on October 12.
