Columbia Police announced today [Wednesday] that an excavation of the city landfill has yielded some clues to assist investigators in closing a 13 year old missing person case.
Police began excavating a 14 acre section of the landfill on Monday searching for dated materials attempting to locate a section where they might find evidence related to Megan Schultz.
Schultz went missing in 2006. In August, her former husband, Keith Comfort, implicated himself in her death to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Police.
He told investigators he strangled her then put her body in a black garbage bag and placed it in a dumpster.
He is being held at the Boone County Jail for second degree murder.
Schultz is still listed as missing.
