    MAGNOLIA SPRINGS, Ala. (WALA) – Today during a press conference, Baldwin County Sheriff Huey “Hoss” Mack said dive crews have found the head and other arm in Nolte creek and weeks creek this morning. He says, they have found all body parts except a foot. The remains are related to other body parts that have been found since Sunday, November 9, in Magnolia Springs.

    Sheriff Huey “Hoss” Mack said they are in the midst of investigating a homicide the likes of which haven’t been seen in Baldwin County, according to investigators.

    White male over the age of 60

    Approximately 150 pounds, 6 foot and 1 inches in height

    Dentures in the upper and lower parts of the mouth

    The victim had a pacemaker, which investigators are examining

    A distinctive mole on the right upper sideburn

    Balding, greyish hair

    Chin hair, and possibly the remnants of a thinning beard.

    [...]

    Mack also said he has no reason to believe there were any other victims aside from the elderly man.

    He also doubts that the crime was committed in Baldwin County.

    "At this point in time, we are operating on the theory that this individual died in another location and ... these two sites are treated as dump sites," Mack said. "

    Terry Perkins?

    Age (60) lines up
    Race (Caucasian)
    Height (6'0) is within an inch
    Weight (150 - 175 lbs) is within range
    Hair description (gray, balding) matches
    Distance (184 mi) is long but doable due to the 5-day gap
    Has some facial hair (you can see it in the picture of him in the article, although I don't think it's significant because we don't know when the picture was taken)

    No pacemaker or dentures mentioned, though. Although the article does mention he has several ''medical conditions'', it doesn't specify.

    ETA: Perkins has a history of walking away from home and it's likely he did wander off. However, the article also mentions he's attempted to hitchhike in the past, which makes the 184-mile distance more reasonable.

    Thank you so much for posting this.

    LE may be releasing a photo of him soon, he is to have a large mole on his face. Some cases really upset me, guess the one's close by. I couldn't sleep last night knowing they were out searching for the rest of his remains. Who does this? It's so upsetting. May he RIP.

    They do have a tentative ID on the remains.

    Mack has confirmed the human remains found in Magnolia Springs were those of 87-year-old Kenneth Bryan Hood. He also said authorities are still searching for Hood’s wife and stepson. Public records indicate his wife’s name is Carolyn Joyce Hood. According to online records William Alvin Minton lives at the same address. Neighbors say Minton is Hood’s stepson. Minton is a registered sex offender.

    UPDATE: 5:10pm Tuesday Nov. 11, 2014

    Police say William Alvin Minton is now a person of interest in this homicide investigation. The house they are searching on Russett Court in Foley belongs to the victim, however Minton lived in the home as well.

    SNIP



    UPDATE: 6:55pm Tuesday Nov. 11, 2014

    Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack says Kenneth Hood's wife and stepson have been found and they are safe in Millbrook, Alabama.Mack says they are in the process of being interviewed. It is unclear why Hood's family members were in central Alabama instead of at their home in Foley.
    Meanwhile, investigators continue to search for William Alvin Minton, the person of interest in this case. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police immediately.

    So William Alvin is not the stepson that was found safe with mom? Just making sure I understand that there are TWO stepsons...

    I have found arrest records for the suspect in several states. He moved to AL from GA. I would like to know when he was in GA. Mr. Hood's cause of death is the same as Shirley Dermond's (Eaton, GA), she was dumped in the river, and her husband was beheaded.

    This is my thoughts exactly. The moment I heard the suspect moved to AL from GA I thought of the Dermonds. It takes a 'certain' type of person to carry out these actions, I can't imagine there are many people out there capable of such a thing.
