The Cedar Park Police Department has an update in the case surrounding a homicide involving a missing mother.

Through the investigation and with the continued help of our assisting agencies, skeletal human remains have been discovered.

Based on that evidence to include artifacts located within the skeletal remains, we are as confident as possible without DNA confirmation that the remains are those of Amanda Gordon.

The remains were found in the Bastrop County area on the property of one of Samuel Byrd’s known associates.

Ultimately, we discovered remains in two different areas of the property. The initial finding is that the remains were found in a burn pit and it is clear through the investigation, there were measures taken to dispose of the evidence.

We will not be able to confirm the identity of the remains until further DNA forensic testing can be done.

In working with the Williamson County District Attorney’s Office, Samuel Roy Byrd has been charged with murder in this case.

This is still very much an active and ongoing investigation.

Again, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Amanda’s family and ask that you please continue to respect their privacy during this time.
