    How sad. :(
    I always think about Tara Grinstead when I hear about a woman found in Georgia.

    Prayers for the family of this poor victim. :(

    OMG, I was thinking Tara too, especially since the victim has been there awhile. They must know it is a woman based on clothes?

    Yep, thinking Tara here, too.

    I'm in Alabama but I can't place Franklin County in GA. How close is this to Ocilla?

    About 270 miles NNE of Ocilla. Very close to South Carolina border, I think.

    Thanks. So, far enough away to make it less likely that it's Tara, but it definitely still could be.

    With all the strange undercurrents in Tara's case it could be her. So many layers that GBI is having a heck of a time sifting through all the nuances and people.

    The article says, "The GBI hopes to have a clothing description of what the victim was last wearing by Tuesday."

    Today is Tuesday. I hope that they reveal the clothing. Would this help to determine if it were Tara? Has it been reported what she may have been wearing last?

    Yes, it would. The FBI VICAP site says it is assumed that Tara was wearing Grey New balance shoes and black sweat pants. That site is the only site reporting what she may have been wearing as much about this case is very tight lipped.

    Carnesville--where the first body in this thread was located--has two exits off I-85. The body was found at the intersection of 320, so it was the fourth exit from the South Carolina line.
    DeKalb county is about 60 miles south on I-85 from Carnesville.

    The area in Carnesville is very rural. Franklin County has the distinction of being the poultry capital of the world! There are millions more chickens than people! :)

    To my knowledge, there are no missing persons in FC. I'd guess this is a body dump from the interstate. Hopefully, it won't take to long to ID. :(

    I actually don't live there anymore, but I read the papers everyday.

    Ironically, the local Franklin County Jail is only about a mile down the road from where the body was found.

    http://www.examiner.com/a-728691~Skeletal_remains_found_near_Interstate_85.html

    The special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Athens office -- John Heinen -- says it could be a few days before a forensic anthropologist with the agency is able to determine the person's identity, age and cause of death. Heinen says officials have determined that the remains are those of a woman.

    http://www.independentmail.com/news/2007/may/15/agents-continue-investigate-skeletal-remains-found/

    Agents continue to investigate skeletal remains found near I-85

    So far, about 40 percent of the remains have been recovered. Mr. Heinen said it&#8217;s still too soon to determine if foul play is involved. The remains have been identified by forensic anthropologist Rick Snow as that of a woman. He estimated the bones have been there for at least three years. More of the remains must be found before work can begin on making a positive identification.
    For now, investigators can do nothing but stand and wait until the rest of the creek is drained, a process they hope will be completed today.
    &#8220;Then we&#8217;ve got the terrain to deal with after that ... It&#8217;s going to be another messy day for us,&#8221; Mr. Heinen said.
    He said they have had a number of calls from law enforcement agencies and families who reported missing persons going back three years or more, but as long the rest of the bones remain buried in the mud, there&#8217;s little chance of finding out who the woman is.
