If she was not really with him at that point it would be easy to pull in to a gas station and buy gas and then go back to the car a moment and then come back inside the gas station/convenience store and act worried and say your sister disappeared. Everyone gets excited looking for an evil abductor that was never really there, and some criminal sitting in jail decides he wants some outings so he "confesses" to the crime but needs several trips to lead investigators to the body but he can never quite manage to find the body. And in all the hubub no one thinks to check back to where she was last seen by witnesses, other than her brother.

    Too bad no one has mentioned any security pics or tape of them where they bought gas.

    She could just be a runaway too.

    I don't think Elvis and his UFO buds got her but there are actually people out there who believe such things are happening.

    Maybe the man that confessed to killing her actually did the crime and was only toying with L.E. before someday revealing the location of the body. He would need to have known something about herself or her body that only family would know to make that very believable, otherwise its just another wild story by an inmate who wants to play.
    i know a little about the story even though i was only a small child when this took place leann and her brother was drivin on hwy 46 when the car ran out of gas her brother walked to the gas station up the road about a half mile and when he returned she was missing the police reports also say that there was fresh crashes on the side going to the end like maybe her pants button crashed it i know that her family was completely out of the question due to the fact her brother was in the gas station and the rest was together i will try to find more info on the since i do live in dickson and can get into public record....she didnt run away she was taken they thought she was taken by a truck driver due to a truck stop was right across the hwy

    Can somebody tell me what sort of graphic the morgue photo is before I look at it? is it cut up, blown apart graphic; decomposed graphic, or both? Or is it called graphic cause its an obviously dead person without 'life' edited into the eyes? TIA.

    Any updates on this case of Martha Leanne Green of White Bluff, Tennessee who went missing on April 15th, 1987? Was the possible match mentioned in this thread ever called in?

    I looked at online maps to see the area. Included link to googlemaps that shows three routes they could have took from the Holiday Inn to White Bluff:
    2 Mile Rd to White Bluff, TN - Google Maps

    The "Old Columbia Rd" route is one that would've taken them past the truck stop. Whichever route they took, they must've ran out of gas just after she was picked up. The truck stop (if it was in the same location as today) was just across the I-40 exit from the Holiday Inn.
    (**I thought the link I included would be an actual link to google, but it was an embedded map. It only highlights the "shortest route" and not the Old Columbia Rd one. The shortest one doesn't even pass the truck stop, which is why I thought they'd take the other way. Sorry**)

    I guess a large truck stop could've had security cameras back then, but most places in my area didn't. Rural Tennessee shouldn't have been much different from rural Kentucky. Around here today, I know of many businesses that have "dummy" cameras that mainly are there just to scare shoplifters into thinking they're being watched. So I don't think there were ever any good pics/video that could've helped the investigation

    This incident happened about a couple miles from where I grew up, and although I didn't know her personally, she was a friend of the family. as far as the location, please keep in mind, this happened about a mile from interstate 40 on hwy 46. In 1987 there was no need for the video recordings at gas stations where this incident took place, it was a different time then. I have followed this case for many many years and can tell you without a doubt she was no runaway. At the same time I can only speculate as to what actually happened.

    What was the age of this brother (obviously, at least 16)?
    ** They were twins

    Did they run out of gas along the highway or did they actually pull into a gas station?
    **They ran out of gas shortly after her brothers picked her up from work. It was also a downpour at the time.

    If they pulled into a gas station for gas, let's think about that one. I have never pumped gas at a station where the pumps were not visible from the clerk's counter and almost the entire store. HMMMM?
    **They didn't pull into the gas station, they ran out of gas on highway 46.

    9:00 pm is not an ungodly hour in any place. Someone had to have been around buying gas too or a gallon of milk or whatever....
    **This was a gas station not a grocery store, they didn't sell that type of stuff. If i remember correctly at that specific gas station, you would be lucky if they had soda and chips, but definatly nothing else. There was a Gas + Grocery store just down the road though, so this particular gas station was not at all a busy one.

    This sounds very UNinvestigated to me!
    **I agree

    Bumping this case up. It has been 27 years since Martha went missing.

    There have been some previous attempts to match her case with those of some others. Has anyone heard how those turned out?

    This interview was done in April. I don't know if it was uploaded online; I would be interested in listening to the conversation.

    Investigators to speak for first time on 28th anniversary of disappearance of Leanne Green

    http://www.wdkn.com/investigators-to...-leanne-green/

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has classified the case as “administratively closed, subject to re-opening with new information,” or what is commonly known as a “cold case.” The Dickson County Sheriff’s Office says the number of tips has dwindled over the last quarter century but it still checks out every lead and follows up on any reports of human remains found in Middle Tennessee.
    On Wednesday’s anniversary of Leanne Green’s disappearance, the Power Lunch on WDKN and 101.5 The One FM will look back over the last 28 years with three men whose careers are intertwined with the mystery.

    Here is part of an article from 1995 which details three of the people RM Richards confided in, confessing the fact that he raped and murdered Leanne:



    In the same article it talks about the fact that Richards had two pieces on information that only the killer would know:

    From last month:

    30th Anniversary Of Teen's Disappearance Marked

    http://www.newschannel5.com/news/loc...earance-marked

    Saturday marked the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of Martha Leanne Green who went missing on April 15, 1987 from White Bluff.

    An age-progressed photo was created to show what Leanne would look like now.

    A Florida inmate confessed to killing Leanne, but he was unable to recall just where he had buried her.

    That inmate was murdered in prison, but hes still considered a viable suspect.
