Langwell, 34, reportedly last called her daughter around 5:30 that summer evening. She informed her daughter that she would be coming home for dinner.

The probable cause affidavit obtained by the outlet noted that in the call Langwell allegedly told her daughter that she would be stopping by her boyfriend Terry Rose's house.

Beaumont police have shared a new development in the case. 12News Now recently reported that law enforcment officials now believe that they have Langwell's remains.


In April 2024, plolice said a "reliable informant" gave the authorities a tip that Langwell had been allegedly killed and later buried in Rose's Lindbergh Dr home, according to an affidavit obtained by 12News Now. 

Based on the information, the Beaumont Police Department was able to obtain a search warrant to go through the property. On June 10, 2024, the officials entered the premises and began their search.


Three days later, on June 13, 2024, officials found human remains on the property, 12News Now reported.

The search was exhaustive and required the efforts of multiple agencies – the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office, the FBI and the ATF, Beaumont's Public Works Department, and Texas Equusearch. “Make no mistake, this was a team effort,” Beaumont Police Chief Jimmy Singletary stated.

Tim Miller, the founder of Texas EquuSearch, a search-and-rescue organization, told KFDM/Fox 4 News that he believes the remains were allegedly recovered from under the floor of a Rose's bedroom. Miller said ground-penetrating radar was used to detect the remains.

 "We knew it had been cut out. I thought, 'My God, it's the perfect size for a person to bury someone,'" said Miller, who went on to add what appeared to be human remains were wrapped in a blanket.

“The identity of the remains are being confirmed at this time,” said Beaumont Assistant Police Chief Jason Plunkett, PEOPLE reported. “However, we believe they are the remains of Kimberly Langwell.”

Langwell’s daughter, Tiffani McInnis said she feels a certain sense of relief after learning of the search. “I don't think I've processed it, to be honest, but the moment that you hear that they’ve found your mother, you’re elated,” McInnis said.

“It's a long time coming and I'm so very grateful to have my mother back. Not in the way that I wanted her, but to know that she's no longer being held is a good feeling,” she added.


Police have arrested Rose, 67, and his bond was set at $1 million by Jefferson County Criminal Court Magistrate Marc DeRouen, 12News Now reported.
