Syndicated "EXTREME GENES" host SCOTT FISHER is being credited with helping find the family of a murder victim and bring her remains back from UTAH to her NEW JERSEY home.
The SALT LAKE TRIBUNE reports that the remains of THERESA ROSE GREAVES, a then-23-year-old woman who disappeared after arriving in SALT LAKE CITY for a job interview in 1983, were found near FISHER's house, and FISHER worked with police to find her family. FISHER worked from the woman's class ring, showing that she had graduated from COLLINGSWOOD HIGH SCHOOL in COLLINGSWOOD, NJ in 1977, and FISHER's detective work calling as many members of that graduating class as he could led to a classmate, DEBBIE VEEVERS, who knocked on neighbors' doors until she found people who remembered GREAVES and identified relatives.
After VEEVERS cross-referenced names of GREAVES' uncles with deeds at City Hall, FISHER used the information to contact family members. A GoFundMe campaign set up by VEEVERS raised money for a proper burial for GREAVES, but family members chose to pay the expenses and the money raised will go to a scholarship in GREAVES' memory at the school.
