    VA - Cassandra Morton, 23, Lynchburg, 10 Nov 2009

    "Campbell Co., VA - Campbell County investigators still have many more questions than answers about a body found Sunday on Candlers Mountain.
    Investigators tell us the remains were decomposed badly.

    Deputies believe this is a female's body, based on the small frame and the type of clothes found near the remains.

    Now, the two priorities are determining who she is and how she died. They're bringing in a dentist and a forensic anthropologist to do just that.
    A hiker found the remains about 60 feet off a dirt path near Camp Hydaway Road. Investigators say looks like someone tried to hide it.

    Campbell County Sheriff Terry Gaddy said, "We do have a small frame body that was covered with wood and rocks and debris."

    The head was found detached from the body further in the woods.

    "It appears to have been there for several months or somewhere in that time frame," Sheriff Gaddy said.

    The remains are in Roanoke where Medical Examiners will inspect the bones in hopes of determining a cause of death."

    I am really intrigued by this find. Does anyone know:
    - what the age range is? height/weight?
    - have they taken a guess at race yet?
    - I don't know the geography of this area - how close is it to neighboring states? which other states could this person have gone missing in?

    Just throwing these q's out there if anyone knows. I'd like to take a stab at making a match on it...
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    They made an arrest in that case in October:

    Here is Camp Hydaway Road where the remains were found:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=...-8&sa=N&tab=wl

    Judging from the map it doesn't look too far from West Virginia.
    Edit to Add: After doing the mileage it is about 4 hours to West Virginia, North Carolina and Washington D.C

    The first person who came to my mind was Brittanee Drexel. Myrtle Beach, where she was last seen, is 183 miles.

    Second is Morgan Harrington, missing since 10/17/09 from Charlottesville, VA which is about an hour and a half drive from the site.

    This is just so horrifying. This perp who did this to Cassandra sounds like a beast. If the individual they arrested for the indecent exposure is not the one who did this, I pray they can find them before anyone else is harmed. Let's hope the students at the colleges in and around these areas take precautions and only travel in groups. Yes, RIP Cassandra. I pray for justice.
