Bones May Solve 50-Year-Old Cold Case of Missing Mother Inez Garcia

03/31/2014 at 06:30 PM EDT

Fifty years after the Santa Fe New Mexican published a story about a mom of four who “abruptly dropped out of sight … and has not been seen since,” cold case detectives finally appear to have solved the case.

After a trained cadaver dog alerted police to two spots in the dirt floor of a single-car garage at the house where Inez Garcia, her husband and their four children lived in the 1950s, detectives discovered a handful of bone fragments, some of which were charred.

Although it will take several weeks for the remains to be identified, detectives have good reasons to believe the remains are Garcia’s, and that she was buried there by her now-deceased husband, Juan Andres Jose Garcia.

Police say there was always suspicion that Juan Garcia buried his wife under the garage.

“When Garcia lived in the home, no one was ever allowed to enter that garage, and he spent much of his time inside,” says a police statement issued Friday. “There were also rumors of strange smells coming from the structure and reports of dogs who tried many times to dig their way inside.”

When Juan Garcia, who was born in 1912, died in the 1990s, the home was sold and the structure was divided into three apartments. In 1996, police went to the property when the new owners found two bones in the garage, but those turned out to be from a horse and a cow. It’s not clear why police didn’t dig up the garage at the time.

Garcia is now considered a person of interest in a possible homicide according to the Albuquerque Journal.

DNA from the bone fragments, believed to be from a tibia and forearm, will be compared to a DNA swab obtained from one of Garcia’s two surviving daughters, now in her 60s, who lives in northern New Mexico, the Journal reported. The women were 5 years old, and nine months old, when their mother died.

“We’ve kept her up-to-date on how the investigation is going,” police spokeswoman Celina Westervelt told the Journal. “We don’t want to give her a false sense of hope in any way; we just want to be open and active with that.”

Louis C.K. May Have Hated On Bradley Cooper, But The Hangover Star Has The Last Laugh

3507bcooper lck615x462 Louis C.K. May Have Hated On Bradley Cooper, But The Hangover Star Has The Last Laugh

We know that comedian Louis C.K. suffered some setbacks as he steered through the gauntlet of show business on his way to stardom. Even though he eventually rose to the top, he doesn’t think that many young hopefuls will have the same success, especially if they think chance encounters will yield their big breaks. However, one actor has managed to defy the Louie star’s logic — the unbelievably gorgeous Bradley Cooper.

In a hilarious mashup video, Louis remarks during an interview that the aspiring actors on Inside The Actors’ Studio aren’t going to get advice from stars like, say, Sean Penn, that will eventually lead to stellar careers. But Bradley did just that, asking Sean about his craft during an episode of the show from back in the day. Guess the joke’s on the comedian in this case!

And to add insult to injury, Louis and Bradley both ended up with roles in American Hustle, with the Pennsylvania native chiding the redheaded funnyman in an awesome scene. It’s easy to see who won that battle!

Mayim Bialik: I’m A “Hippie Mama”

Mayim Bialik raises her children Miles, 8 and Fred, 5, as Vegans. The Big Bang Theory actress – who has a new cookbook out called Mayim’s Vegan Table - says since they are home schooled – it’s been easier for her to have them to follow the vegan lifestyle.

“But you don’t have to home schooled to keep your children vegan,” she said in an interview with One Green Planet.

Mayim added that it’s about teaching kids that “animals have feelings and experiences and lives.”

She also said, “It’s about not going to zoos and about being very clear with my children that Momma gets sad at zoos…momma doesn’t go to the circus. These things won’t work for us.”

A self-proclaimed “hippie mama”  – she makes her kids’ shampoos and avoids commercial cleaning products. The single mom is also a big supporter of breastfeeding. In February she explained why she had no regrets on doing so in public.

She told The Huffington Post, “I think anywhere you give a bottle, you breastfeed. I didn’t feel the need to be immodest, but also feel like that’s going to vary from woman to woman. I would try and be, absolutely, respectful and conscious of the community I was in, but I don’t believe you need to cover up a baby eating, anymore than you need to cover up a baby drinking a bottle.”

“Breastfeeding is not a sexual act. It’s an intimate act, and that makes some people uncomfortable. But that’s completely normal to have all of the humane hormones that are released when you breastfeed regulating your relationship with your child — that’s simply normal.”

Divorced from her ex-husband Michael Stone - Mayim claims he’s a great dad.

“Even though I’m divorced, I’m very grateful to my son’s father for being an incredible present parent,” she told E! News at the 20th SAG Awards Preview Day.

“He’s home with them when I’m at work and he’s their full-time dad when I’m not with them, so that’s how I do it. We don’t use a nanny and I clean my own toilets, famously, and I make my own food and have a very kind of simple life that way. There’s no magic. They have their father taking care of them and that’s how our life works,” Bialik continued. “But I have tremendous respect for moms who are juggling daycare, two parents working and all that stuff. I don’t know how I would do that.

“It’s incredibly difficult, and I appreciate that I’m a public person and people say, ‘Oh, you balance it well,’ but there are women who balance a lot more than I do with a lot more grace and a lot less resources. So I try not to say, ‘I’ve figured it all out!’ because I have a lot of support and there are women who don’t.”
