Runaway Son Exhumed In Utah


By Paul Johnson

Salt Lake City, Utah (CNN) - The body of a Michigan runaway, who was living with a convicted child molester in Utah, will be brought back home.
It's a story we first told you about in February when the mother of Lee Jourdan asked us to help bring her son home.
Jourdan died in 1983 when he was crushed by a car he was working on, but the family didn't know until last year year. They also found out he had been taken-in by a convicted felon, who changed Jourdan's name to Lee Beeler.
A judge in Utah recently approved a petition to have Lee's body exhumed and brought back home to Michigan.
