In 1980, a young couple moved from Florida to Texas with their infant daughter, Holly Marie, before they vanished.
The last time family and friends of Harold “Dean” Clouse Jr., 21, and Tina Gail Linn, 17, had heard from the couple was October 1980, when Tina sent a letter to Dean’s mother, Donna Casasanta, with photos of Holly standing upright and pushing her walker.
On Jan. 12, 1981, a man walking in the woods with his German Shepherd came across the badly decomposed remains of two people along Wallisville Road, on the outskirts of Houston, some 265 miles from the Clouses’ last known address in Lewisville. Investigators were unable to identify the two victims — a man who had been beaten to death and a woman who had been strangled.
Nearly 40 years later, in October 2021, a team of genetic genealogists with Identifinders International, LLC, was able to identify the deceased as Dean and Tina Clouse.
