    SC - Aiken Co., Skeletal remains, Oct'10 - Jasper Jefferson

    AIKEN COUNTY [South Carolina] (WACH) -- A full set of skeletal remains was discovered near Highway 19 north, just north of Union Baptist Church Rd in Aiken County at around noon Saturday.

    <snip>

    According to Carlton, all efforts will be made to identify this person but it could take a long time because the remains may have been at the location for 10-20 years.

    I wish the article would have noted if the remains appeared to be a child or (young) adult as there are threads on WS for missing people, including little Tilwanda Cheatham.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Two possibles from the area:

    Lisa Shuttleworth

    Tilwanda Denise Cheatham


    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/..._tilwanda.html
    Her home on Jack Jones Street is only a mile away from where the bones were found.



    I was looking along the roadside using Google Maps Street-View. I found some scattered debris that might be bones, and something red among the debris (I doubt Tilwanda's Red tee-shirt would last that long). There is also a bare spot in the soil. Perhaps an animal unearthed a shallow grave. You really can't tell for sure, but this could be the remains.

    Human skeleton found off Edgefield Hwy in Aiken County

    Human skeleton found off Edgefield Hwy in Aiken County
    Investigators are trying to identify human remains found Saturday morning in Aiken County. The coroner believes the bones are 15-20 years old.

    The Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton says the skeleton may have been on the side of the road for 10 to 20 years until Rashawn Ferrer found it Saturday.
    He says the skeleton sat behind tall trees that blocked the spot from Edgefield Highway but he says he couldn't tell it was a real body at first when he saw the shoes on the skeleton.
    "I was bent over when I first seen the shoes," he said. "And as I looked at the shoes I seen some black pants and then I seen the shirt and then I seen the skull."

    Looks like the bones and clothing would have been scattered by animals and weather over 15-20 years time and the clothing would have decayed in the elements. Is it possible that the remains were put there more recently?

    I would think that pants would not last for 20 years in the open, especially in a humid climate, such as SC/GA.

    From the description, (1) it doesn't appear to be Tilwanda, and (2) the debris in the previously posted Google Street-view doesn't appear to be the remains.

    Lisa Shuttleworth was wearing pink or grey sweatpants. Could grey be confused for black?

    some new info

    Aiken Co. skeletal remains are that of a man, but no identification yet

    Reporter: Staff
    Email Address: newsroom@wrdw.com

    Monday, October 25, 2010

    AIKEN COUNTY, S.C.---Skeletal remains discovered this past Saturday still have not been identified. Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton says a partial identification concluded the remains to be that of a six foot man. There is evidence of dental work.

    The coroner says autopsy results on the remains revealed no evidence of significant injury or trauma. There was no evidence of foul play.

    Several calls to the coroner's office and the sheriff's office have produced some leads, but Carlton says they are currently following up to obtain medical and dental records on several of the leads.

    He says either dental records or DNA will be the only conclusive way to identify the remains at this time.

    I did a search at Namus for males 5'10" - 6'2" last known alive in SC and wearing black pants.

    I did between Oct 1990 and Oct 2001 and came up with these 2 results:

    link did not work, sorry

    the second man, however, had an amputated leg so I doubt he is a match.

    Aiken is right on the border with Georgia, so you may want to check GA also. Thanks so much!

    i thought this was interesting considering they thought the bones might have been 10 - 20 years old....

    "Initially the remains were thought to have been there for decades, but the investigation showed that Jefferson was known to be alive on or about May-June of this year.

    Jefferson, whose last known address was on Hampton Avenue in Aiken, had never been reported as missing."

    Lucy's Mom - I questioned how old the remains were before they were identified. Don't know how they came up with him being there for decades!

    The article said that the remains were identified from dental records from the Georgia Dept of Corrections so he may have run with a bad crowd.

    calls into question all the dating of skeletal remains if they were that far off here.

    Yep, and Carl also pointed out that the pants would not be in tact if they were there for that considerable amount of time. Wonder just how many other types of these inaccurate statements are out there....throws everything about the investigations way off. IMO
