"I shined the light down to see my footing and that's when I saw her." Seven days after Rowan disappeared, Deputy Jacob Boles and another officer found her body at the bottom of this sinkhole in the hills of McDonald County. Little did he know each day driving to and from work to go search for the girl that he was actually passing by the very place where she was hidden, just a half mile from his home. He had briefly checked the site before, but went back after getting a tip that David Spears, Rowan's stepfather, told a friend about the location. "He supposedly pointed that area out to this man he was riding with that that would be a good place to hide a body."
As noted Monday in the Turner Report, Neosho Daily News Managing Editor John Ford interviewed the man who provided the McDonald County Sheriff's Department with the tip, Newton County Coroner Mark Bridges.
