    Such a shame, and now 3 little children don't have a mommy. It's a shame how some murders get so much attention, and some are hardly noticed. My thoughts and prayers are w/ the victim's family.

    How terribly sad. She was only 29 years old, and her three little children have lost their mom. I am confused as to who had the car, and who's, "brother" was being talked about by whom. That she was found under a pile of clothes sounds odd. Perhaps the murderer felt remorse or or guilt and did not want to see her face. Lion

    Sounds like they don't know very much yet. I hope they will find who did this. Very sad.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    The murderer did drugs. Do you think that she was involved in drugs or it is just a coincidence that this childhood friends did them? In any case, what a sad, sad situation, especially for the children. At least, they are safe, though.

    Brevard County Mom found dead.......

    I lived in Mims for a long time. It was so weird to read on Websleuths under "Crimes In The New" that a murder happened in such a small town that I once lived in.

    I found this too:
    Friend Held In Slaying Of Brevard Woman
    Brevard County Sheriff’s investigators say a childhood friend Sherri Carman had not seen in at least 16 years is now being held in the Brevard County Jail today, accused in her murder.

    The sheriff's office has booked Michael Shane Townson, 37, on a first-degree murder charge in the death of the north Brevard County woman.

    In a press conference today, sheriff's investigators said Townson hit Carman, 29, in the head with a lead pipe apparently after the two began to argue and Townson became enraged.

    Carman's body was then hidden beneath a pile of clothes, and Townson went to Orlando to smoke crack cocaine, according to the police report.

    Welcome and I am so sorry about your mom. I am sure she was a good mom and you kids miss her terribly. I am happy you got some justice, however, I know that is of little comfort when losing your mom. I wish you all the best that life has to offer.
    Your Dream must be greater than your fear!
