    You should put all of your information into an e-mail and send it to the cold case investigator assigned to the case,

    Could you direct me as to where I can find information to locate the investigator assigned to this case along with contact information?

    I'm not sure if I can point out the man in a line-up but I do remember certain details about him and about his vehicle. It's been many years as I'm the same age that Donna Barnhill would be today.

    Some years ago, ground penetrating radar was used to locate a number of Confederate Soldiers buried under the pavement of a parking lot at the Citadel in South Carolina. GPR should be able to penetrate concrete, even with reinforcement "rebar".

    You will find an active thread about Donna's case in the Cold Cases section of Websleuths. It is a very interesting case and there may be connections with other similar cases in North Carolina and other states.

    Donna and Anita were my mom's 2nd cousins.Alot of stories have been told for years from family of how Anita died and Donna went missing.Alot of it you know,her parents were looked at but never charged.To me it seems crazy in this day and age that more was never done before.I know you have to have hard proof,but at some point common cense should take over when you realize only the parents were at home with Anita.Also from what i know they waited almost a month to report Donna missing.I would love to hear from someone lookin in on the case to compare stories and facts and hopefully find Donna and put the cases to rest.Also came across an old lettert that may be of use.

    I just read that on her updated page on Charley project that her sister was murdered. I am baffled that no charges have be filed or anything on that.
    Megglyweegly, can you tell us if there is an ongoing investigation or has it just been dropped and nobody plans to pursue it?

    I don't know anything much about Anita's murder investigation. I highly doubt that charges could be successfully filed at this late date, though, unless there was a confession.

    Oh, that's too bad. it's a shame that someone has gotten away with murder for so long. I wonder if the parents had anything to do with Donna's dissappearance or if it is a coincidence?

    Wonder where sgoodwin went. I wonder if anyone is posting on ancestry.com site that may be connected to the barnhill family?

    Did anyone ever contact the cold case investigator?

    Was the letter ever obtained from sgoodwin? It would be interesting to know if the letter provided any clue-

    Are any other family members active with finding Donna's body? It would seem there is no threat of the parents of Donna since they are now both deceased.

    If remains were to be found are there any family members available to give dna to compare?
