  • Kathy Jones (Left) and Amanda Cluff (Right) of Weber County helped solve a 35-year-old mystery using social media and are fighting to send the remains of who they originally thought was their brother back to his rightful home in Michigan. Jones and Cluff were children of Robert A. Beeler. The family believes Clyde Lee Jourdan, a runaway 17-year-old was murdered by Beeler, a convicted child molester who took Jourdan in and told people he adopted him. Beeler is now dead. Police never investigated the auto mechanic accident death of Clyde Lee Jourdan as suspicious in 1982 and the records have long since been destroyed. Police have forwarded the case onto the city attorney and are waiting for approval to exhume the body to send it back to Michigan. CIMARON NEUGEBAUER/STANDARD-EXAMINER
