COLUMBIA Death — University of Missouri led officials to a body that was found burning behind a house. The investigation in Columbia, Missouri, led to the arrest of Emma Rose Adams, who is now 20 years old and is charged with murder in the second degree, according to the police there. According to Columbia police Sgt. Matt Gremore, on the 10th of January, officers from the University of Missouri Police Department were called to the Hudson Hall dormitory in order to conduct a welfare check. KRCG stated that the student had taken an Uber to a home around 5 miles away in Columbia when he could not be located in the dorm where he was supposed to be.
According to Gremore, “unidentified human remains” were discovered outside of the house, which he described as having “suspicious” characteristics. It was alleged that the bones were discovered in a fire pit located in the backyard. According to a declaration of probable cause that was received by the Columbia Missourian, “The human body was smoldering, and an odor of what (was) described to be burning flesh was present.” [Citation needed] According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, law enforcement officers searched the residence and discovered a “bloody folding pocket knife” as well as a cellphone that was identical to the one belonging to the victim.

The body was unidentified
According to the records, Adams was present at the residence when the incident occurred, and she explained to the responding authorities that she had stabbed the victim in self-defense because “he was beating me.” The identity of the deceased University of Missouri student has not been officially confirmed by the police. Gremore stated on Wednesday that investigators were unable to establish a definitive identification of the body at this time due to the condition in which it was found. Adams was charged with murder in the second degree, armed criminal action, tampering with physical evidence, and abandonment of a corpse after the body of the victim was found. As of Thursday, she was being held in the Boone County Jail on a cash bond of one million dollars, according to the court documents.
