Samantha Hopper Wiki – Samantha Hopper Biography
Samantha Hopper was an Arkansas woman. She and her daughter may finally have been solved after 23 years, thanks to a group of investigators who works to solve cold cases.
Hopper was heading to drop her daughter off in Russellville before going to a concert in Little Rock — when both disappeared in 1998, according to Fox News.
Hopper’s surviving daughter, Dezarae, has worked in the decades since to figure out what happened to her mother and sister.
Eventually, she contacted Adventures with Purpose, or AWP, which works to solve cold cases.
On Oct. 26, the group called the Pope County Sheriff’s Office to share the news they had found a car submerged in eight feet of water, 25 feet from the road.
She was 9 years old.
