UNION STAR, Mo. - Investigators say that Danny Wolf from Union Star, about 30 miles northeast of St. Joseph, was killed some time in May of 2011. Investigators say they have good evidence of that a murder took place - but what no one actually has is Danny's body.
Delores Wolf says she last saw her son, Danny, on May 5th, 2011. When he didn't call her on Mother's Day, she knew something bad happened.
"I didn't think that he was alive right off the bat," she said.
A couple months later, an eyewitness stepped forward saying she saw Danny shot and killed.
"I feel like there was a big whole in my heart. I would never see him again or hear him say I love you mom," Wolf explained.
It was a situation made worse by the fact that Wolf couldn't bury her son.
"I would like to give him- a final- a final resting place," she explained.
Wold says she's asked law enforcement to search.
"They believe they have all this other evidence. They have blood, which they matched to our DNA. They have the gun and bullet and an eye witness," said Wolf.
Her lawyer, Susan Dill, says it's not because law enforcement doesn't care.
"As I understand it, they believe they can get a conviction without a body," she explained.
In fact, Randall Evans will go to trial for Wolf's murder next February.
"We believe that there are people in the community that know where the body is," Dill said.
Danny's family is now asking for your help to call the TIPS Hotline and leave an anonymous tip to give Danny's mom the closure she needs. The number for the TIPS Hotline is 816-474-TIPS.
Danny's family is offering a reward for information that leads to recovery of his body.
The Gentry County Sheriff says a planned search is in the works, and the Missouri Attorney General's office says they're following up on credible leads.
