    The location is about midway between Shelby (pop. 20K) and Kings Mountain (pop. 10K), and about 20 miles outside Gastonia (pop. around 75K). The area is apparently considered a suburb of Charlotte, despite being 40 miles away.

    It's also not far off I-85, though it looks like an unlikely place for somebody to find by accident.

    Lots of people missing from Charlotte....

    This is not very far from these other remains so some of the names in this other thread might be possible as well

    Cleveland County is just next to where I live in Gaston County, and for locals here it seems strange to see suburb of Charlotte for location. We're a world apart from Charlotte.

    I would love for this to be Jamie Fraley to finally give her mother some peace and maybe some answers. Or Asha Degree, another well known missing person in this area. She was just 9 years old when she disappeared so I would imagine even with bones you could tell if the remains are from a child or adult.

    There is another missing woman from Lincoln Co (which also borders Lincoln County). Toasha Nicole Rice who went missing on May 26, 2014. Would she be in the skeletal stages in 7 months.

    Is this area in the mountains? If so, I can see them missing the remains. They found a skeletal body, five minutes from my house a couple of years ago, close to a well traveled ATV road. I never smelled it, or seen it, and I traveled that road at least twice a week by ATV. Weird, I know...


    ETA, they identified that guy fairly quickly though. Drugs were involved, and he was from Tennessee.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    It's not in the mountains but there is a good bit of wooded land around there.

    I didn't think it looked like it was anything to do with Charlotte, but apparently the Census Bureau doesn't know that

    It's about 225 miles, depending on the route: https://goo.gl/maps/QtXD6

    There are a number of other people missing in closer areas as well.

    There is actually another lady that went missing from Gastonia around the time Jamie Fraley did but I cannot for the life of me remember her name. She was last seen at a bar on Hwy 29/74 on a Sat night I believe. She was in a friends borrowed BMW and the car was found the next day but no trace of her. I don't believe the cases were related in any way though. Maybe one of our WS members can remember the case I'm talking about.
