    AR - Carissa Downey, 24, found murdered, Judsonia, 20 March 2011

    WHITE COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV)-- It was a gruesome discovery for a White County property owner on Sunday. Charles Pruett stumbled across human remains just outside Judsonia. Deputies are now trying to figure out who they belong to.


    Cpl. Steve Hernandez says there are no active missing person's cases in the county.

    He says, "There is someone out there that is missing a family member. They may have reported them missing somewhere else and we are just now finding the body. So we need to give some family closure."

    The remains are now at the Arkansas Crime Lab, according to the article. How badly backed up are they?
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    any idea on who her killer might be? (the article link is no good any more)

    I believe that there was a serial killer on the move in southern states in the last few years. Wondering if she could be one of the victims.

    From October 2013:


    William Nickels Collins, the accused in the 2011 murder of a Cabot woman, entered a nolo contendere plea to a reduced charged of first-degree battery in Faulkner County Circuit Court on Thursday.

    Collins was sentenced to 60 months in prison, and will not be eligible for parole due to a prior conviction of second-degree criminal sexual conduct in Michigan...

    Bonnie Collins, the wife of William Collins, was originally charged in the murder, but prosecution entered a nolle prosequi due to lack of evidence.
