PANAMA CITY — When investigators searched Joanne Benner’s home not long after the 21-year-old wife went missing, they found a patch of carpet removed from her Titus Road home in Bayou George.
To date, her body has not been found after the suspicious disappearance in 1976; however, investigators still are convinced Benner was killed.
And they claim to know who killed her, but have never been able to prove it.

Along with specks of what investigators suspect is blood throughout the home, Benner’s then-3-year-old daughter is reported to have told a relative that on the day of Benner’s disappearance, “Mommy had to go away because she was bleeding from the stomach,” according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office records.
Investigators also later found the patch of carpet in a trash can. It had been set on fire, BCSO reported.__________________________________
