    GA - Buford, skull and bones in suitcase near interstate, 29 July 2016

    Human skull, bones found in suitcase north of Atlanta

    ...Gwinnett police Cpl. Michele Pihera says a construction worker found the suitcase Friday morning while he relieved himself about 80 yards into a wooded area along I-85. Pihera says the suitcase appeared to have been in the wooded area for an extended amount of time....

    From your link:

    ...Police responded to the call at about 11 a.m., Pihera said, and when they arrived and went through the bag they found the remains of what appeared to be an 80-year-old...
    That sure seems worded strangely, to me. "80-year-old" seems awfully specific...though I do realize that it may have just have been a casual way of saying "a person of quite advanced age". And all of this is, I think, before the medical examiner has contributed.

    Things I'm wondering: How big was the suitcase? Were the remains completely skeletal? Any personal effects?

    Sure hope they can make an identification fairly quickly.

    I just saw an update on FOX5 news. The remains are believed to be those of a woman aged 20-30 years old, possibly mixed-race or Hispanic, and are believed to have been there for about 6 months. I'll see if I can find a link to support that.

    ETA: Found a link.

    Adreiana Burroughs is missing from Conyers, GA (nearby) and is biracial, but she has been missing for a year and is only 15 years old.

    Yissel Morillo is missing from Buford,GA and is Hispanic, but she has also been missing for a year and is even younger than Adreiana. Yissel is also really small, so I doubt she would be mistaken for someone in their 20's. Also, Gwinnett County PD said they have no one missing who matches the description of the remains, and this would be the same jurisdiction, so this is probably not Yissel.

    I realize it's a few hundred miles between Savannah and Buford (and she has only been missing for 3 months), but missing Eva Fullmer seems to generally fit the description of these remains.

    So NOT "an 80-year-old" -- somehow I thought not. I think one of the early links said the suitcase was "80 yards into the woods" or something like that. I wonder if someone just misheard what the police officer was saying and "filled in the blank" with the "80".

    Eva Fullmer sure does seem like a possibility, sadly. But it is going to be sad, whoever this is.

    ETA: I see the Savannah Morning News is picking up the story...but no mention of Eva, as yet. That is going to be rough for those who might care about her in Savannah to read, I'm afraid...whether or not it turns out to be her.

    if I recall, she isn't really local to the area. I think she is originally from Oklahoma? I need to re peruse her thread. I also suspect she was a high risk victim.

    You're right, she is originally from OKC, but went missing from Savannah.

    A quick google map search of Georgia seems to show Savannah and Buford connected by a highway system (with a middle point of Atlanta)

    Granted, I don't know much about the sex trade industry/human trafficking, but it is suspected that Eva was involved in this lifestyle, and being placed in a suitcase and left by the side of the road seems to fit how a pimp or someone similar may discard body.

    I left a message with pertinent information in regards to Eva Fullmer being a potential match to this victim with the lead detective investigating this case (Det. Hedgeworth, or a similar last name). I will update if and when I hear back from him or receive a response.

    I know she no longer has a thread here because of SM insanity that derailed everything, and she isn't mixed race, but Morgan Bauer went missing from the Atlanta area in February. She has a lot of tattoos so depending on the condition of the remains (skeletal?) identification might be possible.

    Whomever it is may they be ID'd and rest in peace.

    I am from the Atlanta area .. Savannah is usually about a 4 hour drive or so from Atlanta basically taking I75 to I16 East ... if you were take interstates from Savannah to Buford, you would come back the same and just hop onto I85 north in Atlanta which is the Buford direction - there are also a lot of small highways and backroads which I don't know much of .. I usually stick to the main highways
