Body Found in Jackson County


She was left behind on a remote Jackson County road murdered. Police have no idea who she is, and they are hoping someone has a lead for them. The search to find out who the victim is has gone statewide.

They have plenty of evidence. There is no question it is a homicide, but not everything is adding up. They don’t know who the woman is.

A woman was murdered, and then tossed over a hill. She’s a woman in her early to mid 20's. She's about five feet eight inches tall, and 120 pounds, with long brunette hair. Police found her with just a necklace on, and red painted toenails. Near her body was a pink tank top.

What’s believed to be the second crime scene, where the body was found, is just off of big run road near the Jackson and Roane County lines.

The Mill Creek Baptist Church sits at the corner of Big Run Road, and news of the discovery is unsettling. The Sheriff is hoping for just a few answers to bring a vicious crime to justice.

Police aren't saying how the woman was murdered. They say the body has been there anywhere from two to seven days. There are no reports of any missing women with the same description in the region, so an alert has been sent out state wide. If you have any information, you are asked to call your local police department.
