Georgia authorities will compare DNA obtained Monday from a missing Gaffney woman's mother to remains of a dismembered body found near LaGrange, as parallel investigations develop in the disappearance of Verlisha Littlejohn and the discovery of that body.
Cherokee County sheriff's investigators had developed few leads in the Nov. 28 disappearance of the 24-year-old caregiver of adults with special needs...

Oh, Lord, this is so sad =( ... it sounds like that call she last made to her mother that got disconnected; she was trying to say i love you for the last time. Whoever killed her is a sick POS to have been able to chop her up and put the body parts in different bags and then attempt to burn them.
This is a murder case, can it be moved to crimes in the news?
I want to say it was someone who knew her, yet it's so hard to picture someone chopping up someone out of a crime of passion.. maybe they knew of her and she didn't know them?
My prayers for her family..
Isn't this a strange case? I hope they find the creep that did this before it happens again.
I'll never understand how one human being can cutup another human being. You have to be pretty sick to do something like that. LE must have a reason to think that this is the missing female. I hope it is so her family can find some peace and bury her.
Oh my! I am going to Gaffney next week to visit friends.
Hey! Myrtle Beach is a favorite vacation spot of ours. When you visit, keep a lookout for Verlisha's posters. They are everywhere. Her family really misses her and wants answers.
You know, I saw the picture of that truck! If that isn't a Christmas present for LE then I don't know what is! I am thinking that someone will come forward very fast with an ID for LE. IF they will be brave enough to admit that the driver of the truck could be involved in something so terrible.
*Sorry for the off-topic!
I pass by one of those rest stops all the time on the way to Greenville! I am glad that I never decided to stop! Makes me wonder if it's very safe going to shop in Gaffney? (At the outlets)
A family relieved, but still searching after remains found do not match their missing daughter.
25-year-old Verlishia Littlejohn has been missing since November 28th. Her family members thought they had some closure when detectives in Georgia found a trash bag with a woman's remains, but Littlejohn's mother says sheriff's deputies told her that DNA test results on the remains do not match Verlisha.
The family was relieved but this only makes them worry more about where Verlishia could be.

Amazingly, this was the second body pulled from Broad River at around this time. A missing teen was also found in the Broad.
Verlisha has been identified postively through dental records.
And with someone so in touch with her caring side, and loving of her family - What is going on with all these 'deaths by water?!!!'
