MCTXSheriff Investigates Two Bodies of Missing Couple
On June 5, 2022 at 10:23 am the Roman Forest Police Department received a call reporting human remains located in the wooded area near the intersection of Fairway Drive and Putters Green, New Caney, Texas. Upon arrival, Officers discovered a body that was in the late stages of decomposition in the wood line near Fairway Drive. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was then contacted to assist with the investigations. A vehicle that is linked to two active missing person cases was located close by, and upon further investigation, a second body of a female was located in the trunk of the vehicle.
Preliminary identification leads us to believe these are the bodies of the couple that was reported missing May 25, 2022. The female victim is thought to be Megan Madison Leach, 19 year old female, and the other body which is not yet positively identified is believed to be the registered owner of the vehicle.
The motive and circumstances surrounding these deaths are under investigation, and our hearts and prayers are with the families and friends of the deceased.
The bodies will be taken to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy and positive identification. At this time, we do not believe there is any danger to the public. This is an active investigation and no other details can be provided at this time.
