    A cranium was found in the woods behind 583 E. Pratcher Road by a lady hunting her horse. The cranium was found in a wooded area under some trees. An additional search was conducted by Dr. Nicholas Herrmann and students of Mississippi State University under the supervision of the Panola County Coroner and the Panola County's Sheriff Department. They found two femora(left & right) near the original location of the cranium along with a piece of clothing, a gold necklace and a car jack.

    Not much to go on there. Not even an estimated time...

    The closest PM I could find is Latrice Armstead. She disappeared 1 1/2 years before the remains were found, and the distance is only 47 miles. Her age and height are within range.

    There's also Kamesha Williams, who disappeared about 4 1/2 years and 49 miles away, and her age is within range. But you'd have to assume the height is wrong and the person who submitted the case to NamUs meant to put 5'8 instead of 58 inches (4'10).

    In trying to Google map 583 E. Pratcher Road, Sardis, I tried Sardis, Batesville, Oxford, and Como MS. The only one Google recognized as being close to that address was 583 Ed Pratcher Road in Como. That's not unusual, as these towns have outlying areas that are sometimes identified with one town, sometimes another (depending on whether you're talking water, electric, cable, etc.). Como, like Batesville and Sardis, is in Panola County.

    583 Ed Pratcher Road is located in the northwestern area of Sardis Lake (which might also account for the "Sardis" rather than "Como.")

    She's been added to the Doe Network: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1248ufms.html

    Interestingly, the estimated height is 5'7 - 5'9 (it was 58 inches/4'10 on NamUs). If this is accurate, then Kamesha Williams seems like a fairly strong PM. She went missing 47 miles from Sardis and her age is also within range.

    There's also Shirley Gladney, missing since April 1999. Her age and height are within range, and she disappeared about 88 miles from Sardis.

    Another one I like is Chassity Reed, missing since October 2002. Age and height are within range. Charley says she went missing from Little Rock, AK but when she last contacted her family, she said she was in Greenwood, MS. Greenwood is 79 miles from Sardis.

    I'll try calling in these PMs today

    ETA: I just called the number listed on NamUs and my call got passed around like 3 or 4 times (and even transferred to CrimeStoppers at one point) before I realised that I was actually calling detectives in Austin, TX... I guess I'll just email Doe Network and the Michael Nance to tell them the contact info is incorrect

    No ruleouts. The height discrepancy between Namus and Doenet still hasn't been resolved. No news.

    The post above regarding a bullet hole behind the left ear prompted me to search through MS cases for the most likely victims of homicide. And there is one who fits the general criteria:

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/4355/

    Her height falls somewhere in between Namus and Doe. DNA is available for comparison. According to this article:

    http://lancasteronline.com/news/she-made-a-mistake/article_65dd8555-9dde-59f5-a6f7-1c7c4dd65c8d.html

    her boyfriend is believed to have shot her in the head at their apartment in Alligator, which is ~60 miles southwest of Sardis. He allegedly burned her body and threw it into Alligator Lake, but it was never found there.

    Wonder if the story he gave them was false, and he actually took the body to the Sardis location instead.

    Also, there is a 583 EARNEST Pratcher Road that pulls up in the same vicinity with a mobile home property on it - looking up records, it looks like one of the past owners last name was actually Pratcher - just wonder how someone would find that place to dump a body out in the middle of "no where" but near a house? Unless the house was not there until far after the body was disposed of .. 583 E Pratcher Road.jpg

    If the dumper is not a local and in a hurry/panic, thinking they've found a remote area? A lot of people especially from bigger towns, do not realise that it's common in the countryside to have miles between neighbors and then to have a cluster of housing with random dirt roads. Especially places with livestock and horses, since you might need to keep your fields empty for years for the ground to recuperate. If it's very dark, they think they found a random dirt road into the forest and try to "just get over with it".
