    I found this article about unsolved crime in Alabama. Marsha Hart is listed at the end of it as a missing person since 1985, but I'm unable to find any other information about her online. Maybe she's been found? In addition, Rilla Sheehan is also listed as a missing person, but it appears that she has been removed from Charley (not sure why). Here NAMPN profile is below.

    Also found this article indicating that more remains have been found. There is speculation that this could be Brittney Wood, missing since May 2012.

    I was surprised to find a close up personal photo of the skull in the wkrg link!

    I kind of hope it's Brittany. She needs to be found and sadly, with so much of her family up to their eyeballs in legal trouble, I don't think Brittany is alive. She needs to be found so she can be properly buried.

    I hope whoever this skull belongs to can now be at peace.

    Any sharp eyes on here that could register a guess on age or race of skull based on that pic?

    From what little I can see in the photos, I am guessing that this is a black male. I am guessing black based on the rectangular orbits, and male based on the brow ridge and strongly defined cheekbone. The cranial sutures are still very much visible, so I would say the victim is relatively young (or at least not elderly).

    I see two black males on my list from Mobile Alabama, both of whom have narratives that fit with the circumstances of this UID.

    Just looking at the strong cheekbones, I am going with Tamborah.

    I think on the Brittney Wood thread they said 17 to 24.

    Edgar A. Powe is a strong possibility too. Rumor has it that he was murdered, and his body thrown in Mobile Bay.

    The news clip indicates that the skull was under the north side of the bridge, which means that the perp was heading southwest on I-65 toward Mobile.

    If the perp and victim came from Mobile, one would expect that the body would be dumped off of the South side of the bridge from the Northeast-bound lanes. Of course, they could have turned around before dumping the body, but that is not usually how it works. Typically, the objective is to dump the body as soon as a suitable location is found.

    I said the same thing over on her thread, although it really could be just about anyone from anywhere. Sad.

    The remains have been sent to the University of West Florida for examination.
