    Oh wow. Who would do such a thing to an older woman? Beat her, stab her in the HEAD? Then leave her in the woods? Possibly between 4 and 430? If it were just a burglary, none of this needed to happen. Someone was angry, either at her, or just itching to harm someone in general. I wonder if the killing itself happened in the woods or in the apartment.

    The neighbors say they heard two loud thuds in her apartment the night of the day she was last seen. That could've been unrelated or perhaps even a false memory but, if that's true I think it would be too coincidental to not be related.

    And I agree, if it was an assault and burglary why move her? There's definitely a lot of missing pieces here!

    And the fact that no sexual assault is mentioned and she was fully clothed. Sounds like this was a very personal, targeted killing to me. Unless, like you mentioned there was just someone out there itching to hurt someone and she was just an easy target :(

    Glad to hear they have suspects, and I hope there's some DNA to work with.

    She was an elegant and proud-looking woman. Beautiful bone structure. Sad that she was so alone, despite the photo with the baby. May she rest in peace.
