    How very sad.

    I'm so glad arrests have already been made.

    Farrah Strength, 29, was arrested shortly before midnight Wednesday and then Joshua Clay, 31, just after midnight, Sailors said.

    I was hoping that at least this might lead to breaks in other GA cases... but she knew the person(s) who killed her.

    Why? I don't understand.



    "In custody are 29 year old Farrah Strength and 31 year old Joshua Clay, both of Carrollton. Police say Strength was the killer. Both Strength and Clay are charged with murder.

    Police tell WSB, Elliott was lured to Carrollton after receiving a phone call from Strength.

    No motive for the killing has been released, nor has the cause of death."

    "Farrah Strength, 29, was arrested shortly before midnight Wednesday and then Joshua Clay, 31, just after midnight, Sailors said.

    Dobbs told WSB Radio that the body was found in a rural area about five to eight miles away from where investigators think the victim was killed. He thinks the body was placed there late last Thursday or early Friday morning.

    Dobbs told WSB Radio that Strength and Elliott are friends but that it had been "a year or so since they actually talked." Dobbs said Strength called Elliott to "get her to come to Carrollton."

    Engle also said Elliott could take care of herself. The two took a self-defense course together and Elliott would “flip people three times her size without even thinking about it.”

    The woman killed her? That's a bit surprising if true. What would the motive be if they had not talked in a year?

    Answering my own question....

    If the woman really is the one who killed her, I am thinking that this is a revenge/jealousy type situation from a relationship.

    Marci moved on and her previous relationship couldn't handle that.

    Or someone felt that Marci was a threat to their relationship.

    I'm thinking like these cases of high school girls that kill their rival. That is what this is starting to sound like to me.

    Or perhaps it was one of those "just wanted to know what it was like to kill someone" situations. I just thought that was a bit less likely since we are talking about 30 year olds, not 13 year olds. Not to mention she wouldn't be the person to target given her self defense training, if there was no specific motive to kill her.


    I haven't seen Marci's facebook linked anywhere. Here it is: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...661805&ref=sgm

    I agree completely with all of that. Continuing with your possible motives, maybe the reason they hadn't talked in a year was because of a fight, dispute, or something of the like? And maybe this woman couldn't move past whatever happened even after a large period of time and decided to "get even"?

    BBM. This is what I would guess would be the motive. But the two suspects are quite a bit older than Marci, so I'm not sure they'd be dating the same men.

    I actually wondered if Marci might have been dating one of the suspects themselves in the past. Once we know the cause of death... we will know how personal it was. If it was more "intimate" then it will be more indicative of an ex (rather than a jealous girlfriend/boyfriend of an ex.)

    I hope that made sense...I'm walking on eggshells here. Sorry.

    They said on Jane that the male suspect did NOT know Marci.

    That the female suspect did know her.

    That they think she was killed at the female suspect's apartment.

    Report says that Marci and Farah had had a "falling out" and that once Marci had gone missing, Farah was in "close contact" with the family, "helping" to find her. I swear, I wonder how many abducted childrens cases could be solved if they investigated everyone that wanted to "Help". I know that's not possible of course, but I bet the kidnappers of many missing persons helped in the search.

    If Marci's friends didn't know these people, it is less likely to be a ex romantic situation. I would think they would have known about those.

    It is possible this is just one of those situations that doesn't make any sense and doesn't have any real motive...or just a killing just to kill situation. I would guess there is some mention of why in the confession that was given.

    There is no assault or robbery charges. Joshua is charged with Kidnapping, obstruction and they are both charged with murder.

    "Murder Suspect Had Issues"

    http://www.11alive.com/video/default...d=320544319001

    In this video the friends say that they are already planning a celebration for Marci on the first day of the fall semester. That Marci always wanted them to celebrate her life not mourn her passing. That they thought it would end up being random, they did not think anyone who knew Marci could hurt her.

    That they did not know the suspects, only knew OF Farrah and that Marci hung out with her sometimes. Farrah's neighbor talked about her claims of being in and out of mental institutions and even escaping from one. As well as "studying demons". That they lured her there with the intention to kill her... but the motive is what everyone would like to know.

    I was hoping she would be found safe.

    Prayers for her Dad and Mom. They were so active in searching for her right away.

    Magistrate Judge Al Johnson revealed in court Friday that Marcelle "Marci" Elliott, 21, had been strangled to death.

    Farrah Strength, 29, along with Joshua Clay, 31, are accused of luring Elliott to her death last week.

    Both were denied bond Friday.

    Police said they think Strength and Clay killed her inside Strength's mother's Lovvorn Road home, and then dumped her body in some woods south of town.

    SLIDESHOW: Murder Suspects Appear In Court


    Documents indicating that Strength was involved in another murder investigation seven years ago have been discovered.

    Channel 2 Action News reporter Richard Elliot uncovered Carroll County Sheriff's Office documents showing Strength's mother, Christine, was charged with murder in the death of her husband, Jerry, in 2003. Detectives said Christine Strength, armed with a pistol in both hands, gunned down her husband, Farrah's father, outside their Carroll County mobile home.

    Investigators told Elliot that Farrah Strength was not home at the time of the shooting, but did provide them with statements saying she and her mother had been the victim of years of domestic abuse at the hands of Jerry Strength. She also claimed her father raped her.
    Deputies charged Christine Strength with murder, and the District Attorney's office presented the case to the grand jury, but the grand jury "no billed" it -- meaning that the grand jury believed there was insufficient evidence to indict. http://www.ajc.com/news/cobb/west-ge...ed-580032.html

    Another senseless tragedy and a life gone too soon. And to think Marci trusted the person who lured her to her death.


    RIP, Marci
    Rest in Peace

    "According to Strength`s neighbor E.J. Critten, Strength told him and a friend of his, `I have killed before and I don`t have a problem with killing again,` just a few weeks ago. Also according to Critten, Strength was acting strange last Sunday when he said hello to her.

    Critten described how he said hello to Strength while she was at her mailbox; she jumped as if being shot; she looked through him as if he was not there; and she then hurried back into her house without saying a word."

    This girl Strength sounds seriously disturbed. What senseless violence. RIP Marcy.
