I still wonder if the trailer was thoroughly checked over for evidence. It is very strange that it was hidden for so long. Did they have dogs check the trailer and/or home for the scent of human remains? This family deserves answers! Dang! They need help getting answers!! :frustrated:

iirc, they did check the house but it was like 2 years later and the trailer was hidden at the time of the search.

I just am not certain or confident that LE has really tried everything they can to nail this guy or to find answers that are available. Hopefully I am wrong. In a lot of cases, it takes one very dedicated detective to push and get answers.

Ita, at one time there was a reporter that showed interest and actually was vital, jmo, in getting the TBI involved, if only for a moment It doesn't help that he never reported her missing and everyone was clueless that she was missing for 6+months. He had no problem blowing her inheritance, guess the money ran out, jmo. And his failed business and sport activities, oh, he makes me really angry.

What wonderful news! Finally some justice for Marsha!

And hopefully some degree of peace for her family members who have not given up on justice.

"Husband Arrested After Wife Missing Since 2009
The husband of a woman who has been listed as missing since 2009, has now been arrested for her murder -- that according to Jim Logan, the attorney representing the family of the missing woman.

Marsha Brantley was 51 years old when she was last seen in late May or early June of 2009. However she was not reported missing until November when a friend reported she had not been seen for several months.

At the time, Donnie Ray Brantley and Marsha Brantley were married, but Donnie told TBI investigators that his wife left him and they were planning to divorce, according to a spokesperson for the Bradley County Sheriff's Department.

Donnie Brantley was arrested Monday morning following an indictment by the Bradley County Grand Jury. He is charged with 1st degree murder."

From the Bradley County Sheriff's Office:

An arrest has been made in connection with the cold case investigation into the disappearance of Marsha Brantley over four years ago.

Investigation conducted jointly by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation resulted in the Monday arrest of Brantley’s husband, Donnie Ray Brantley, after a county grand jury charged him with first degree murder.

Marsha Brantley was 51 years old when she was last seen in late May or early June of 2009. However, she was not reported missing until November when a friend contacted an attorney who relayed the information to the District Attorney’s Office. At that time, an investigation was begun by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at the D-A’s request.

The T-B-I asked the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office for assistance in 2011 and the matter has been under investigation since that time.

Dnnie Brantley, age 48, of Kingston Georgia, was taken into custody at the Judicial Complex when he appeared in court for a previous charge of hindering a secured creditor. He is being held in the Bradley County Jail with a bond of $500,000.

Good work LE! It looks like they charged him with a clear minor offense that made his show up in Tennessee and then they pounced with the big charge.

He entered a plea of not guilty and bond was set at $500,000.

His bond amount has been reduced.

Donnie Brantley's bond was reduced to $450,000 dollars.

....


There's no word on if Brantley has the money to bond out of jail.
