    AL - Traci Pittman Kegley, 30, Elmore County, 26 April 1998

    Kegley was last seen at the BP gasoline station near the intersection of northbound Highway 231 and Redland Road in Elmore County, Alabama during the afternoon hours of April 26, 1998. Her Geo Storm was discovered abandoned along Old Georgia Road, a secluded road in Wetumpka, Alabama, the following morning. Kegley's two-year-old daughter had been left unattended inside the car. Kegley's personal belongings, including her purse and identification, were recovered at the scene. She has never been heard from again.

    LAKE JORDAN -- A property owner in the Titus area made a grisly discovery Sunday morning when he found human remains bound in a tarp and buried in a shallow grave.

    The man, who isn't a suspect in the case, called the authorities about 10 a.m., said Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin.

    "We haven't been able to ascertain the race, sex or how long the remains have been there," Franklin said. "But they have obviously been there for a long time. Once it was confirmed that there was remains, we stopped what we were doing and contacted forensics. We wanted to preserve any evidence that may be inside the tarp."

    Franklin realizes people may jump to the conclusion that the remains are those of Tracy Kegley, an Elmore County woman who was reported missing almost 10 years ago. Her car was found in April 1998 on the side of Old Georgia Road north of Wetumpka with her young child inside. The child was unharmed

    Families Await Identification On Body Found In Elmore County

    July 24, 2007 07:33 PM EDT

    30-year old Tracey Kegley vanished some 10 years ago but there is growing evidence the skeleton found in a shallow grave on the eastern side of Lake Jordan is not her.

    "Some things have come out that would indicate it's not her," said Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin.

    So who is it?

    "I don't know," Franklin said.

    With that in mind, Elmore, Coosa, and Montgomery Counties have taken a keen interest in the case because those counties have missing females. The sheriff says they are fairly certain the remains are those of a female, average height but it's still unclear how old she was. The skeleton was covered with 3 inches of lime and early indications are the body had been there for at least 5 years.

    The identity will eventually come. The more difficult challenge will be to figure out who killed her and why.

    They should be able to identify her quickly based on dental records.

    I will check the missing persons in this area, see if I can find more.

    There's a thread about the shallow grave found and awaiting the ID. We've been waiting for a long time now when the article seemed to indicate the ID would come quickly.

    I remembered this thread, but the aboce is dated 9/10/2007, and said the body was discovered on Sunday.

    This brings to mind 2 skelton remains:

    I researched names in Elmore, Coosa and Mongomery Counties that were considered endangered missing for more than 5 years:

    Carla Corley: missing 8/12/80, Birmingham Al, Age now-38

    Sherry Marler: missing 6/6/1984, Greenville Al, Age now-36

    Kimberly Ramer: missing 8/15/97, Opp Al, Age now-27

    MaryJo Burnette: missing 6/1/84, Rockford, Al, Age now-39

    Darlene Tolbert: missing 8/18/97, Hunstville, Al Age now-15

    Brenda Green: missing 7/2/88, Brookwood, Al, Age now-34

    Unfortunately, they said there isn't anything to point towards Tracey Kegley, I would insist that families of the above check dental records for all missing persons in Alabama.
