Who is Baby Holly Marie?

TRAGEDY hit a Texas neighborhood in the 1980s after two parents were found dead in a wooded area.

The bodies remained unidentified until 2021, when authorities used genetic genealogy to identify them as Tina, 17, and Harold Dean Clouse Jr., 21.

Who is Baby Holly Marie?

Holly Marie Clouse is famous as daughter of Tina and Dean.

In 1981, she disappeared with her parents and was never seen again.

However, in June 2022, cold-case group Identifiers International was able to locate Holly, who is now 42 and “alive and well,” according to Fox News.

Holly’s location comes just months after her parents were identified, although questions remain as to what happened to her parents and how she survived.

First Deputy Attorney General Brent Webster told reporters that baby Holly was dropped off at an Arizona church by two barefoot women in white robes who said they were members of a “religious nomadic group” that ate only vegetables and avoided leather products, according to NBC News.

“The family who raised Holly are not suspects in this case,” Webster added.

Holly now resides in Oklahoma, but details of her personal life remain unclear.

How Did The Police Find Baby Holly Marie?

At this time, investigators have not disclosed how they were able to locate Holly.

In a press release, Attorney General Ken Paxton praised the Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit for helping locate Holly, but gave no additional details about her parents’ murder.

“I am very proud of the extraordinary work being done by my office’s newly formed Cold Cases and Missing Persons Unit,” Paxton said of PEOPLE.

“My office has been working diligently across state lines to unravel the mystery of Holly’s disappearance. We have been successful in our efforts to locate her and reunite her with her birth family.”

Holly’s biological paternal grandmother, Donna Casasanta, added, “I have prayed for answers for more than 40 years and the Lord has revealed some of it…we have found Holly.

“Thanks to all the investigators who worked so hard to find Holly. I prayed for her day after day and that she would find Holly and be okay.”

At this time, Tina and Dean’s murder case remains unsolved, although prosecutors are hoping the newfound publicity will lead to answers.

What is Genetic Genealogy?

Both technology and science have advanced since the 1980s and are now helping police investigate cold cases.

Genetic genealogy, which police used to identify Dean and Tina, is a new form of DNA testing that often helps create family histories.

According to the Library of Congress, genetic genealogy uses DNA test results in combination with traditional genealogical methods to identify the nature of biological relationships between or between individuals.

Some of the benefits include the ability to expand research beyond the paperwork of past centuries and to construct ancient family trees through molecular evolutionary studies, the Library of Congress adds. Who is Baby Holly Marie?
