SC - Myrtle Styles Hembree, 11, Una, Murdered 1947

11 YEAR OLD MURDERED IN 1957
Myrtle Styles Hembree, an 11 year old girl, was raped and brutally murdered in July 1947 in the small community of Una near Spartanburg, SC.

She had been picking blackberries with her parents, went to a nearby store, and was later found beaten to a pulp in a closet of an abandoned house.

Despite an intensive search including bloodhounds and nearly 100 officers, no one was ever charged with the crime.

Would love to have contact with anyone who is familiar with this case.

I knew a Debbie Hembree from Spartenburg....

we worked together at a grocery store. She would be 48 or 49 now. I wonder if they were related. I don't recall her ever saying anything about a relative being murdered though, but it isn't something you talk about I don't suppose.

Correction to Myrtle slaying

Corrections to the Above:

Myrtle Styles Everette - not Hembree.
She was killed in 1947.
I have done additional research on this case, although evidentiary files are no longer available with law enforcement.
Anyone with any knowledge of the case is urged to contact me, please.
I am working two angles - a story on the unsolved murder and pursuing a possible suspect.

Thank you.

Any more information on this case? I wonder if it might in any way be linked to another case, that of Georgia Jean Weckler , 8, Missing since May 1, 1947 from Fort Atkinson, Jefferson County, Wisconsin ?
