    This sounds cryptic. I wonder who reported her missing, and what about her disappearance leads police to state publicly that they feel foul play is involved? Obviously they have something that leads them in that direction.

    Prayers for Amanda!

    Masalean Salters hasn't seen her daughter Amanda Evans since January 29th.

    "She called me about 10 minutes later and said she'd be home in 15 minutes. That 15 minutes hasn't come yet," said Salters.

    The 43-year-old was last seen at Fast Payday loans on South Monroe Street in Tallahassee and her family says Amanda's ex boyfriend Orin Battles was with her.

    That she was last seen, not looking like herself, in the company of her ex-boyfriend, a man with a criminal past, does not look promising. I guess I understand now why the police suspected foul play almost from the very start.

    Praying for Amanda.

    [UPDATE] Murder Arrest in Missing Person Case: Amanda D. Evans

    Police say body found in Ochlockonee River yesterday is missing Tallahassee woman Amanda Evans. Orin Battles charged with murder.


    http://www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/Mi...115379009.html


    TPD Release:

    On Sunday, January 30, 2011, the family of 43 year-old Amanda Evans contacted the Tallahassee Police Department to report her missing. Family members explained that Ms. Evans had not been seen or heard from since Saturday, January 29, 2011.

    Investigators began searching for Ms. Evans and located surveillance video from a local business in the 2000 block of South Monroe Street. The video depicted Ms. Evans' vehicle and a man, later identified as 47 year-old Orin Battles. Ms. Evans had an ongoing relationship with Battles over the years. Investigators interviewed Battles on Monday, January 31. At the time, Battles denied any involvement in the disappearance of Ms. Evans.

    On Sunday, January 30, the Leon County Sheriff's Office responded to the 2700 block of Lake Bradford Road in reference to a suspicious incident. A citizen had been fishing in a canal area and located blood and a knife. The items found were collected and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for analysis. Meanwhile, investigators from the Tallahassee Police Department also sent samples of Ms. Evans' hair and Battles DNA to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

    Late yesterday, a human body was discovered in the Ochlocknee River near Highway 12 in Gadsden County. The body was in an advanced state of decomposition and was later positively identified as Amanda Evans. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed that DNA on the knife found on January 30 belonged to Battles and that the blood was that of Amanda Evans.

    Battles was located at approximately 11:30PM last night and arrested without incident by the Tallahassee Police Department.

    ARRESTED:

    Orin Battles, B/M, 8/25/63 CHARGES: Homicide.

    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.

    From December 2012:

    "Orin Battles is guilty of first degree murder," Judge James Hankinson read the verdict aloud. That guilty verdict came after just 35 minutes of jury deliberation...

    Battles was Amanda Evans' longtime boyfriend. He has now been convicted of killing her and dumping her body in the Ochlocknee River in January 2011. Evans was stabbed 24 times, shot six times and beaten.

    Within minutes of the guilty verdict Battles was sentenced to life in prison.
