    TN - Gina Muir, 37, Chattanooga, May 2004



    http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/27432468...na-mirs-murder

    On November 20, 2004, skeletal remains were found near an alley at East Main and Mitchell Avenue on Chattanooga's Southside. "Wrapped... in a piece of carpet," Sgt. Phillips explained. "Hidden by a recliner. Yeah, it was obviously foul play."

    Decomposition was so severe, investigators could only recognize the remains as being that of a female. Dental records identified her as 37-year old Gina Muir. The coroner located a fracture at the base of her skull. Her death was not an accident...

    We spoke with Muir's mother, Gloria Edge, in 2010... The two had lived together until March of 2004, but Gina's life took a turn and her mother took action. "What caused me to ask her to leave was tough love," said Edge. "Gina had gone to a lifestyle that left her in harm's way."

    Gina had been living at home with her mother after getting out of a relationship. After being confronted by her mother about drug use, she left home. She was staying with friends when she could, but, according to friends, she was basically living out of her vehicle.

    She was last seen in the Main Street area by an acquaintance in May of 2004 and was reported missing by her mother in June of 2004.

    I live about 3 hours north of Chattanooga but never heard of this case. Muir is my mother's maiden name. This case seems solvable, if the witnesses or perpetrators are still alive.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Friends Still Hoping Cold Case Murder Of Gina Muir Can Be Solved


    On Nov. 20, 2004, at approximately 9:35 p.m., Chattanooga Police were called to the area of 1500 Mitchell Ave. on a report of possible human bones found. Skeletal remains were found at 108 E. Main St. in an overgrown, abandoned lot near an alley which runs through the 1500 block of Mitchell. At the scene, the medical examiner was able to determine that the remains found were that of a white female. With this information, investigators with Chattanooga Police Department Major Crimes Division worked alongside investigators in the Youth and Family Division to compare a list of missing white females from the area.

    On Nov. 23, 2004, the remains found were identified by the medical examiner through dental records as Gina Lea Muir. During the forensic exam, the medical examiner also located a fracture at the base of Gina Muir’s skull which occurred just prior to her death.

    Police said Gina had been living at home with her mother after getting out of a relationship. After being confronted by her mother about drug use, she left home. She was staying with friends when she could, but, according to friends, she was basically living out of her vehicle. She was last seen in the Main Street area by an acquaintance in May of 2004 and was reported missing by her mother in June of 2004.
