    Thanks, Ladylub, for posting this news. I'm glad to know Ima Jean has made it back to her family.

    Since you posted this, I see that we are also getting coverage of that fact here in middle Georgia. Her mother's words are very sad to me:

    Ashes of missing Warner Robins girl sent home to Texas

    ...The Beaumont Enterprise reported Thursday that Wisecup received the ashes from Georgia on Tuesday. The family is planning a memorial service in April.

    "When you get her back, this is all you get right here," Wisecup said Tuesday, patting a silver urn. "This is all we have of her." ...

    ... Until December, Wisecup said she had never heard of Knowles. She had always hoped her daughter might have run away and chosen to disassociate herself from the family. ...


    "After 38 years of waiting to know, you feel like the walls closed in," Wisecup told the newspaper. "I carried her home from the hospital, and I get to carry her home today."

(Since Knowles is dead and has been for a long time, I am not sure the serial killer forum would be appropriate...?)

    Ima Jean's apparent killer, Paul John Knowles, at times claimed he had killed 18 people ... and I believe I saw on local coverage of Ima Jean's identification that she brought the total of his known murders to 18 or 19 ... but it seems that at other times he claimed to have murdered 35 people.

    I know that, among the "18" victims he sometimes claimed, at least a couple of bodies were never recovered.

    During his 1974 "spree", he visited several widespread states and is reported to have killed in several of them, but there apparently are also states he spent time in during that period where he is not known to have killed anyone -- but who really knows?

    I also wonder about the possibility that he may have killed before the 1974 spree.

    Anyone have thoughts on this, directions?

    Thanks!
    He claimed 35 consistently. He just died before he could give details on more than the 18 confirmed. He was accidentally killed in a scuffle with police officers over a gun.
