    From article above, it is now being investigated as a homicide

    Tim Fuller said the cause of death appeared to be blunt force trauma to the head. According to the Herald Chronicle, the death is being investigated as a homicide, although officials said that the murder was not believed to have taken place where the body was found.

    I had just now posted this in Megan Sharptons thread. I didn't see this, thank you for starting a thread!!

    I just keep thinking, there are at least 3 others (not counting the Mrs ) that were involved in Megans death that are still out.

    praying for the families, friends and our community.
    RIP Megan Sharpton, you can rest now. We'll be your voice.

    Is there a link about Megan Sharpton? Do we know this is who it is? When I put the link up, there was no other info, so I didn't relate it to anyone. Horrible for anyone to have to die this way...

    What a sad deal! Sounds like LE was pretty sure who this was as soon as the vehicle was spotted. Thankfully, the hunters checked it out! RIP pretty young lady!

    so thankful they checked the vehicle. Even Sheriff Fuller said usually people don't want to stop or get involved. They'd just pass on by.

    So so sad.

    I don't think the sheriff meant passersby don't want to stop or get involved.

    I think what he meant was that people probably saw her before this happened and/or know who did this and THEY often don't want to speak up or get involved.

    This wasn't random, it was someone she knew and the police want to bring witnesses forth.

    What is disturbing is in the link to the article, the Sheriff says this below:

    "We feel certain that the homicide didn't happen where the vehicle was found," the Sheriff said.

    It seems that would imply that the person who may have done this may have had an accomplice because him/her/they probably did not walk away from the location where the truck was found. If it is assumed they rode away from the area in another vehicle and it is assumed Kayla was murdered elsewhere, then that means at least 2 other people could be involved because it takes 1 to drive the truck and another to drive the get-away vehicle.

    The only other way it could be just 1 person is if the 1 person had left their vehicle near where the truck was parked first with Kayla first, and then Kayla and perp left the area, and then the perp drove the truck back to the area. I suppose that is possible too, but it seems it would be less likely due to the danger of leaving the perps vehicle in that area to be seen by others.

    I wonder what makes the Sheriff feel she was murdered elsewhere.

    This is so sad and is very disturbing. I hope there is no connection to Megan's murder, but it is possible. That general area has had too many murders lately. It needs to stop.

    I really don't think this was random and I would bet the police arrest the killer/s pretty quick. I bet she was killed at a "friends" house which is why they had to hastily dump the body using her car. Seems like the killer/s panicked and were more than a bit stupid.

    They will probably start putting pressure on the people she knew and someone will talk. What is the old saying? Three people can keep a secret when 2 of them are dead?

    It appears she was beaten to death.

    Seems the authorities may not have a clue where she was before she died, and no one is mentioning when she was last seen. One news cast said she had not been reported missing.

    Did someone else take care of her children? Most mothers that leave 2 small kids for a few hours, or even a whole weekend, tell people where they are going.

    Just remember that LE knows a lot more than is released to the media. It sounds in this case that they are keeping a lot to themselves.

    She had a lot of friends...they are grieving. I feel so so bad for everyone.
    Her babies lost their mother, how do you explain that to little ones?

    So horribly saddened for them all.

    This area has too much bad news, we are all sick of this meanness. I hope it's not connected to Megans death...I'm really hoping the others tied to her case are seriously just sitting idle until they 'turn their testimony'....praying for that.

    You guys, send good thoughts and prayers our way here in Franklin/Coffee counties.

    Looks like they will wrap this one up quick.

    The sheriff told NewsChannel 5 on Tuesday that he does not yet want to release the names of those two persons of interest, but says his detectives have questioned both of them. He says they are getting closer and closer to an arrest.

    On Tuesday, detectives with the Franklin County Sheriff's office focused their attention on General Street in Coffee County. They say it's possible the two persons of interest they've developed might have ties there, or that someone might have seen Kayla during her last hours of life and might know some small detail that could lead investigators to her killer.

    Another article says the police think she was found not long after she died.
