Female Body Found in Shallow Grave Identified as Missing Alabama Woman

Paighton Houston, who Sent Worrying Text after Leaving Bar, found Dead in Shallow Grave in Hueytown


A female body that was found by authorities in a shallow grave in Hueytown has been identified as missing Alabama woman, Paighton Houston, 29.

Houston sent a text to a friend saying that she could be “in trouble” after she left a Birmingham bar with two women last month.

The Trussville Police Department said investigators found the body in the backyard of a home in Hueytown Friday. Her body was wrapped in some sort of fabric.

Houston texted a friend after leaving Tin Roof bar with two men asking the person to answer if she called because she did not know who she was with. Houston went missing after that.
