NC - Janeth 'Jannie' Porter, aka Janette Locklear, Pembroke, 10 Oct 1979
Kim Clancy of Bloomfield is on a quest for truth.
She yearns to know more about the death of an older sister, Janeth ("Jannie") Elaine Porter, also known as Janette Locklear, who disappeared Oct. 10, 1979. Jannie's body was found four months later.
The sisters' mother identified the tattered remains of Jannie's clothing and dental records confirmed Jannie's identity. They buried her remains Feb. 2, 1980.
Someone had tied Jannie to a tree near Pembroke, N.C., - home to the University of North Carolina and located about 40 miles southwest of Fayetteville - and shot her nine times.
Jannie's body fell forward and the rope imbedded in her bones. A newspaper article included a photo of officers carrying Jannie's remains in a gunnysack.
For 25 years, Kim has wanted to know who shot her sister and why. "Jannie's death took its toll on me," Kim said.
In addition to missing her sister, Kim found no solace in family members who wouldn't talk about the murder. When Kim persisted in asking questions, she was reprimanded. After she said someone in the family may have done it, one of Kim's relatives said, "God will get you for that."
And, a few years after the funeral, Kim found a threatening note taped to her window. Even so, Kim has persisted in collecting police records and in asking questions during her trips to Pembroke.
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
