    Wonder if this was a random break-in and then he stole Ms Major's car with her body in it?? Or if they knew each other somehow? Sounds like they found him by APB looking for her stolen car.

    Thoughts and prayers for her family.

    Man Arrested in Dothan Faces Murder Charges

    A man arrested in Dothan, on a traffic warrant awaits transfer to Blakely, Georgia in the death of 55-year-old Lucy Major, who disappeared Friday.

    Police said 24-year-old Thaddeous Taylor led officers to Major's body early yesterday in Alabama woods near the Georgia line.

    Taylor was arrested in Dothan for a driving-without-a-license warrant issued last year. He is being held in the Houston County Jail.

    Major's body was found about one a-m- Saturday in a ravine located off Houston County road 85 in Gordon, near the Georgia Line, according to Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd.

    Byrd said preliminary analysis of the body show that she was beaten and possibly stabbed. She was found wearing a night gown, her body wrapped in a quilt and partially submerged in water.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
