Body of Stone Phillips' aunt is found


BARDWELL – Ellis County sheriff's officials said Saturday that they expect to charge a 49-year-old man with capital murder in the death of Doris Phillips, the elderly aunt of Dateline NBC anchor Stone Phillips.

Although authorities described the man as a "longtime friend" of Mrs. Phillips – who had been missing since July 26 – they would not say how the two knew each other.

Mrs. Phillips' 50-year-old son, John Phillips, said he knows the man and had suspected him in his mother's disappearance. He would not say why.

Mr. Phillips also said his mother seemed to be warning her family and friends of impending doom in the two weeks before she disappeared.

"There were things she said to her neighbors," Mr. Phillips said. "She felt like she was being watched. ... She was picking up on some things."

Mr. Phillips did not elaborate, saying he didn't want to hinder the investigation.

He said he's relieved his mother's body was found so she can have a proper memorial service.

"It's difficult, but there's also great relief," he said. "There's relief, anger and joy of knowing this nightmare has a light at the end of the tunnel."

Mrs. Phillips acted in several low-budget films, and her son said he wants to show at her memorial service a never-released movie about racism filmed in the 1990s and starring his mother.

Thanks for posting this, Pandora. I've been watching my RSS feed for news on this since Mrs. Phillips went missing and haven't seen any updates.

Not the ending I'd hoped for, but at least some closure for the family.
