    I have seen many tattoo's like that, a lot of mothers will get them and put the childs name and yr they were born.

    However they didn't give a lot of details to go off of except the area and the tattoo.

    It looks like there are names on the tattoo as well. Can't quite make them out though.

    One of the butterflies looks like it says Kerry 2001. Could be Kenny 2001.

    Hate to say it but I wonder if three children lost their mother.....

    It would help if they would release her vitals, as well as just the picture of the tattoo. I say this because there are some people that are described only as having multiple tattoos with no further description, or in some more conservative families, people have tattoos that the reporting party might not even know about. The tat is a good identifier, but telling us height, weight and hair color certainly wouldn't hurt, but none of the articles seem to have that info.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Identified!

    The woman, whose body was discovered Tuesday in Crab Orchard, Tenn., has been identified as 35-year-old Summer Nicole Nelms, of Knoxville, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said Friday in a news release. Investigators used her fingerprints to make the identification.

    The truck driver, Alan Stacy Rogers, 32, of Pines, N.C., is being held without bond in a North Carolina jail, charged with first-degree murder, Helm said.

    From the link in the previous post:

    The tattoo depicted a string of flowers woven between three butterflies. The names written on the butterflies’ wings were those of Nelms’ children, McKenzie said.

    How incredibly sad, now these children are without their mama.

    I'm glad they caught the perp so quickly.

    May Summer sleep peacefully and receive the justice she so deserves.

    Prayers said for her family, children, an all those who knew and loved Summer.

    from that link:

    A photo sent to the media showing a tattoo on Nelms’ body helped lead to identification, authorities said.
    Rest In Peace, Summer.

    Prayers for her children and rest of family, and friends.

    From December 2011:

    http://www.local8now.com/home/headli...135810753.html

    The Cumberland County's Sheriff's Office says that Alan Rogers - the suspect in the murder of a Summer Nelms - was found dead at the county's justice center...

    Rogers was found hanging in his cell and taken to a local hospital where he died a short time later.
