A dive team with the Norfolk Police Department could be seen coming in and out of the man-made pond all day at the intersection of Joyners Bridge Road and Rt. 258 in Isle of Wight. The search area is roughly 40 miles from where Hadsell was last seen on Millard Street in Norfolk.

"I went to the scene. It was very hard. I was there when her body was loaded up and carried away. She wasn't alone. God was with my dad and I and we prayed on the road there. Websleuhths helped me tremendously. Thank you. This isn't over. I'll be back on line soon."

The stand out question for me is why THAT house, of all places? What was so special about that house, that it was chosen to leave AJ there? Did whoever left her there know that it was abandoned? Did they know there was no chance of anyone finding her unless they knew exactly where to look? If so, how did they have this information about that specific house?
04-23-2015, 12:25 PM #14
If you look closely, @1:30 mark , you can see what appears to be a shovel leaned against the shed behind the white fence. I find that interesting, since the home was abandoned for 2 or 3 years. Considering the fact that LE didn't discover AJ's remains until the 2nd day they were at this house, I can't help but wonder if her body was buried or at least partially buried.
Speculation and JMO. Nothing solid to base that on what-so-ever.
