Amber Dubois Update: Gardner Linked To Disappearance And Death
The body of missing 14-year-old Amber Dubois was found on Saturday in a remote area near Pala in San Diego County. There were prior speculations about the potential role of registered sex offender John Albert Gardner III in Dubois's disappearance and death. Gardner has been charged in the rape and murder of another teenager Chelsea King whose body was also found last week near Lake Hodges in the same county. Now, all doubts have been lifted. The Escondido Police Department has officially linked Gardner to Dubois's case. Gardner is now being investigated in connection to Dubois's death as well. Dubois went missing in February of last year on her way to school.
