    This woman went missing in DeSoto County over Memorial Day Weekend. Wonder if there is a connection?

    That's what I was thinking, MyTee. This is just a few miles from where we live (I'm the one that lives in Walls, MS). I'll have to take a road trip down that way.

    The remains were found off 301 and Platt road, close to Arkubulta lake (so about 15 miles south of us), most likely the 50 yr old lady last seen at The Handshake Bar. MHO
