Pathologists Match Remains to Missing Woman

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- Montgomery County Forensic Services has confirmed the remains Texas EquuSearch found on April 19 were Margaret Kay-Alana Turner.

According to the MCSO, dental records were used to make the confirmation that it was the woman who’d been missing since March of 2023. The cause and manner of death have not been determined and remain under investigation. The Sheriff’s Office posted about the identification on social media “no foul play is suspected.” Presumably, that meant foul play wasn’t suspected by law enforcement. Turner’s family and friends may see things differently, and that may continue indefinitely, regardless of the outcome of the final forensic findings, as they’ve been very critical of how the missing woman’s case was handled in Harris County and the circumstances leading up to her disappearance from the Tomball area. At least they’ll finally be able to say goodbye.

On April 20, we posted the following:

Texas Equusearch has found what are believed to be the remains of a woman missing since March 10, 2023. Kay-Alana Turner, 27, was last seen in the Tomball area.

On Saturday, her family posted the following update:

“We love Kay! God loves her more! She has been met with the Kindness of the Lord. After 407 days Kay-Alana has been found. We must wait for the medical examiner to determine positive identification but it is our belief that our baby was found by Texas Equusearch yesterday not far from where she went missing on March 10, 2023. From what we know she has been in the presence of God since that date. Texas EquuSearch went above and beyond for our Kay and we thank God for them. We will be silent on this page for a season. Thank you all for your prayers they are our strength.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

Below is one of several posts we shared after Turner went missing. It was written by the family and friends of Kay-Alana Turner and explains more about how this tragedy began:

The family of beloved local musician Kay-Alana Turner is pleading for the safe return of their daughter, who has been missing since Friday, March 10. She was last seen in Harris County wearing a bright pink maxi dress. Kay-Alana was experiencing a manic episode at the time she went missing, relaying to loved ones that she hadn’t slept in two days since her medication was recently changed. Kidnapping has not been ruled out as the explanation for her sudden disappearance.

On Friday, March 9, Kay-Alana’s boyfriend, James, and best friend, Brittany, became concerned when she texted “no help” to Brittany without explanation. A friend in Austin shared that he received a call from Kay-Alana announcing that she was driving to visit him. However, her phone was dying, so he encouraged her to write down his address. Unfortunately, Kay-Alana got lost and confused on the way. She thought she had arrived in Austin but was actually in Harris County. She began knocking on doors looking for her friend which was verified by Ring cameras. She eventually fell asleep in her 2006 Honda Civic in a stranger’s driveway. The people who were staying at the home in which the driveway she fell asleep came home late Friday night. She then moved her car to an adjoining driveway on Country Hills Drive which is north of FM 2920 and east of Decker Prairie Rosehill.

Early on Saturday, March 10th residents in the area found Kay-Alana sleeping in her car and called 911 when they could not wake her. When Harris County Sheriff’s Office arrived and could not wake her they broke her window with a 2×4 piece of wood, startling her. She put the car in gear and drove through several fences and pastures before getting stuck near Spring Creek. Leaving her purse and cell phone in the vehicle she fled her vehicle.

Her vehicle was tracked by a local resident on an erratic path to Spring Creek. Her footprints were found on both sides of a log that was in a log jam on Spring Creek. The trail continued into Montgomery County. Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was alerted by Harris County at approximately 9 am almost three hours after the incident.  Kay-Alana’s family has been working with several different law enforcement agencies across the area to try and bring her home. However, according to the family the Harris County Sheriff’s Department has taken Kay-Alana off the missing person’s list and instead filed paperwork for her as a fugitive for running from the police, even though she did not knowingly break the law. The police have a duty to protect the public, but their actions, in this case, have been harmful to Kay-Alana and her family. Brittany Mendoza, a friend of Kay-Alana Turner said, “Kay deserves a voice, protection, and access to public resources dedicated to finding her and getting her home safely. She has never even had a parking ticket on her record, and experiencing a mental health crisis should not make her a criminal.” Texas Equusearch combed the woods for six hours but was unsuccessful and can no longer help due to Kay-Alana being listed as a fugitive. The family is asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact them at —- or to contact local law enforcement. Kay-Alana Turner’s loved ones are also urging the public to contact their local officials to ask that charges be dropped so that she can once again be added to missing persons. Kay-Alana Turner is a family girl and celebrated local musician in Beaumont, Texas who loves vintage clothing and playing with her niece and nephew. She is a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, and her family is desperate to find her. They appreciate any help and support the community can offer during this difficult time.

Kay-Alana was on two-different medications she had just gotten from her doctor. It is assumed this had something to due with her actions. According to her family, she is a collector of vintage clothes. She is also a very intelligent woman who speaks three languages. She has also written several articles for publications.
