    GA - Donna Ogletree Johnson, 28, Barnesville, 16 July 1984

    Georgia Bureau of Investigation Case File - Donna Ogletree Johnson

    On July 16, 1984, Donna Ogletree Johnson, a 28 year old white female, left her home in rural Lamar County, Georgia, en route to a nearby dumpster to empty trash. She never returned to the residence. Her automobile and two small dogs were found parked at the dumpster a few hours later by a passerby, but Ms. Johnson was not found. According to friends and relatives of Ms. Johnson, this was both unusual and suspicious.

    Law enforcement officers from the Lamar County Sheriff's Department in Barnesville, Georgia were dispatched to the abandoned car immediately. Rene M. Hood, a deputy sheriff for Lamar County, was the first law enforcement officer on the scene. She was notified at 4:40 p.m., July 16, 1984. Upon responding to the scene and being familiar with Ms. Johnson, Deputy Sheriff Hood immediately knew that something was terribly wrong.

    A search party was organized shortly thereafter, consisting of Lamar County and surrounding area law enforcement authorities. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Region Six Office in Milledgeville was also called by then Lamar County Sheriff Frank Monaghan to assist in the investigation. Shortly after the discovery of the vehicle, a heavy downpour of rain began which hampered investigative and search efforts.

    At 8:52 p.m., the body of Donna Ogletree Johnson was found bound and gagged in the rain filled ruts of an abandoned logging road. By the time her body was found, the heavy downpour had washed away much of the potential evidence that may have helped in the investigation.

    Witnesses including neighbors, acquaintances, relatives and passersby have been interviewed over the years since Ms. Johnson's murder. However, no strong suspect has ever been developed.


    Middle Georgia Cold Cases: The Routine

    GBI agents are still looking for a killer who murdered a Lamar County woman in 1984.

    One investigator says the weather played a role in altering this Middle Georgia Cold Case, and it’s difficult to bring closure woman’s family.
    “She had been bound and gagged and brutally murdered. Going forward from that time, this investigation has carried on for a number of years,” Carmichael said.

    A number that’s continuing to grow as the day month turn into years. Carmichael says his agents have worked dozens of angles, leads, and interviews trying to find something.

    “We’re looking for help from the public, somebody out there who knows what happened to Donna Johnson,” Carmichael said.

    Investigators want to know anything — any clue — that can help solve who killed the young wife so soon as she was going through her routine.

    Just like Janet Carter , I do believe it would be interesting to see where Franklin Floyd and his friend were at this time, I sincerely believe he murdered many more than we know about, and that seems to be his MO
