    Following a fresh lead in the disappearance of Jimmy Blevins, agents with the State Bureau of Investigation and deputies with the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office began mapping out target areas for a potential dig on Smithey Road last week.

    Body dug up in Ashe County is believed to be Jimmy Blevins

    CLIFTON - Authorities dug up a body yesterday in Ashe County and believe the remains are those of Jimmy Blevins, a man missing since 2007, said Ashe County Sheriff James Williams.

    "We're transporting him to Chapel Hill for positive identification, but yes, it's Jimmy," Williams said at about 7:30 p.m. yesterday as the body was loaded into the back of his truck. "We're confident…Hammer told us where it was."

    The body was found about 4 to 5 feet deep on property where the longtime prime suspect, Freddie Hammer, had done work on private property off N.C. 88 in the Clifton community near Warrensville. Clothing found at the scene matched Blevins' clothes...More...

    From December 2012:


    The family of a man murdered by Freddie Hammer was awarded a $14.9 million civil judgment Friday in Ashe County Superior Court.

    Hammer was already serving seven life sentences without parole in Virginia for the 2008 shooting deaths of three men at a Christmas-tree farm in Grayson County, Va., when he pleaded guilty in December 2010 to murder in the death of his nephew, Jimmy Blevins. He was sentenced then to another term of life without parole...

    Hammer killed an off-duty Philadelphia police officer in 1978 but was freed from prison in 1986 after being acquitted in a new trial. He admitted killing the officer but said it was in self-defense...

    Hammer remains a suspect in the unsolved murder of Tim Shatley on N.C. 16 in Ashe County in 2005, Williams said. He has not been charged in connection with that crime.
