photographer Walt Burlington was poking around the mill earlier this month when he shined his flashlight into the well and saw a pair of pants with a rib cage sticking out.

Stories of bones found in abandoned wells have a certain, irresistable je ne sais quoi.
Here's a link to the longer Daily Journal article: Bones in hands of state medical examiner
We are, I know not how, double in ourselves, so that what we believe we disbelieve, and cannot rid ourselves of what we condemn. (Michel de Montaigne)
Here's another article with a couple of other pictures made around the mill along with some statements from the photographer who found the bones.
(date of article on or around July 21 2012)
Some people may consider me crazy, I say I'm just inspired.
For a moment, I thought this was a duplicate thread.
But earlier this month, a second body was also found in a well in Fancy Gap VA - 150 miles from where this body was found.

“We have two missing person reports that we’re looking at really closely,” said Kelly. “The decomposition of the body gives them a more specific idea of how long ago it occurred.”

Kimster - wow! They have to give us that cryptic statement and make me wonder who it is that they are referring to?!!

IIRC, Rockingham isn't all that far from Ft. Bragg.
If someone were heading east say, to I-95 from Ft. Bragg, would that person go through Rockingham?
I am cartographically challenged, so forgive me if I am turned around.
Yep. Backwards. Ft. Bragg is about an hour east of Rockingham.
Still, quite close......
I'm curious as to who the two missing persons are that they referred to in the article. I'm not finding reports of missing persons in that county. Do you guys think they mean in surrounding counties?
“They were able to get X-rays on a broken bone in his left arm,” said Chief Kelly, “and were able to match them 100 percent.”
Police said [Cecil] Collins’ brother filed a missing person report on the man with the Rockingham Police Department in 2009.
Another case where I didn't find any missing person information online about the victim.
Rest in peace, Cecil
