I am from a neighboring town, and I remember this case well. It is a terrible thing for a family to have no closure. I remember the rumor at the time was that the perpetrator, who may have been in a relationship with a family member of Kem's, had close family ties to an investigator in Walton County, Florida. (Rumor Only) I know that most of the leads that were followed by investigators led across the line into Walton County. This is not far from Ozark where JB Beasley and Tracie Hawlett were abducted and killed in 1999. I hope they find out what happened to Kem one day soon.
