With One Confession, A 25-Year-Old Missing Person's Case Might Be Solved

A little girl went missing twenty-five years ago and no one has seen a sign from her since. The case went cold long ago and police were stumped. Now, someone stepped forward to make a startling comment about the girl's fate. The girl's mother insists it's a lie, though.

Martha Jean Lambert was 12 years old in 1985 when she vanished without a trace. Authorities believed the Florida girl had been kidnapped. Now, 25 years later, her brother is speaking up. He says he knows what happened to his sister, but he's always been afraid to tell anyone.

David Lambert was 15 years old at the time of his sister's disappearance. With a heavy conscience, he called the police and confessed to accidentally killing his younger sibling.

Lambert said that he and Martha went out that Thanksgiving Day because their father was yelling about the turkey being burned. They walked to an abandoned college campus near their home. The building had been closed and boarded up for years and the kids started exploring.

Lambert had given his sister $20 to go to the store earlier. She spent $4 and gave him back the change. While they were exploring the closed campus grounds the girl asked for another $20. Her brother refused to give her any more money.

Martha, a feisty young girl, punched her brother in the face. In his anger he shoved her back. She fell backward onto a metal spike and was impaled at the base of her skull.

"D. Lambert stated when he lifted Martha up there was a large hole in the back of her head and blood was pouring out," wrote the officer who took the confession. "D. Lambert stated he initially called out for help, hoping that someone would be walking by and hear his cries."

When no one came, Lambert said he just buried his sister in a shallow grave. He used a piece of broken old sign to dig it up. He said he was terrified of telling his parents that he killed his sister because he thought his mother would kill him.

Authorities went to dig for the remains where Lambert said he buried the body, but nothing was found. K-9s were also unable to detect any remains. There was no sign of Martha anywhere.

Authorities say the place had been leveled years ago, and the ground debris was cleared away. It's possible her remains were mixed in with the rubble and went unnoticed. But without a body, they're unable to charge David Lambert for his sister's death.

Martha's mother believes her son is lying. She believes Martha is still out there alive somewhere.
