FL - Ethel Shannon McCarson, 42, dismembered, Orange County, 6 April 2016
John Franklin knew something was wrong when he spotted scavenger birds diving into the woods near his neighborhood bus stop on Old Winter Garden Road. When he approached, he found a naked woman's body in the brush...
The Orange County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as 42-year-old Ethel Shannon McCarson...
The woman was decapitated, cut in half and her arms and legs were cut off, witnesses said.
McCarson was last seen alive March 31 in her home in Polk County, Ga., according to the Sheriff's Office. It's unknown how, or when she ended up in Central Florida. Deputies said McCarson was known to travel around the Florida panhandle area.

"This is for real," Frankie Sanders said.
Sanders, 86, said it's still a haunting sight to walk out the front door of his Eustis home and see a memorial across the street to 24-year-old Shelly Arnold.
Sanders saw Arnold's body on Feb. 19, 2015, in a wooded area, and he said he first thought it was a mannequin.
But the truth is that someone killed Arnold and dumped her partially dismembered body.
"When I saw this and heard about this out here, really, I was like, 'What happened out here?'" Sanders said.
Orange County deputies are also working to solve the McCarson slaying. The victim's remains were found in a wooded area April 6.

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
