    Friends of a missing Kinston woman have turned to prayer through Facebook and in a nightly vigil for help in finding the 27-year-old mother who mysteriously disappeared more than a week ago.

    Lenoir County court custody documents say the 27-year-old was emotionally unstable, but friends say she would never willingly abandon her two boys and mysteriously vanish.

    Thanks for the additional links. I heard about this case on Tues. Wasn't much information out there. Its very close to where I live. I really hope that everything turns out to be o.k.

    I have gotten so jaded that as soon as I heard the grandmother (exboyfriends mom) say that they had been in a custody battle for more than a year, that dad was upset because the children and dad had been sitting in the car for over an hour waiting for her 'and it was hot'....welll, it just didn't sit right with me. No compassion whatsoever imho.

    Hopefully, they will find her alive and well and the sooner the better. As always there is not a single person who says she would up and leave her two little boys on a whim.

    My prayers go out to her children, parents, family, and friends.
    A parole review date is set for July 21, 2012 for Fred Howard Coffey.

    Coffey was convicted of the murder of 10 yr old Amanda Marie Ray, NC. He admitted to molesting 300 children.

    Please write a letter on behalf of Amanda.

    Suspect in the murders of:
    5 yr old Neely Smith, NC

    This is alarming pattern of kiling mothers of children by husbands or fathers of the kids. It would seem this might be higher than national average. I wonder why.

    I said this awhile back, this area certainly seems to have it's share of dead, young mothers IMO. We haven't even finished the Jason Young trial, not begun Raven Abora, and now there is another one in line.

    The case of the Texas body bag was particularly vexing to Radisch. A month earlier a woman from Kinston, a city 90 miles southeast of Raleigh, had disappeared. Eleven days later a collection of bones turned up in a Texas creek. Dental records linked the remains to the Kinston woman, Laura Ackerson, who had been in a custody dispute with her ex-boyfriend, a Raleigh musician and the father of her two children.

    But after opening the body bag in her Chapel Hill lab, Radisch was flummoxed. The Galveston medical examiner's autopsy was sloppy. He had sawed into many bone fragments himself, and several parts of the skeleton were improperly labeled, or not labeled at all. A piece of neck cartilage was partially crushed, suggesting strangulation, but Radisch couldn't be sure. The cartilage arrived in a peculiar mass of tissue, and it was possible that the Galveston doctor crushed it himself.

    Radisch needed Ross to tell her which bones had been sliced by the Galveston doctor, and which had been sawed by Ackerson's murderer. More important, Radisch wondered if Ross could solve a key mystery of the case: determining the precise type of saw used to dismember the 27-year-old mother.

    The phone call marked the early stages of an investigation that took several twists during its two-year course. Ackerson's murder and dismemberment would become one of the most notorious cases in the city's history, sensationalized by local media when it went to trial.
