    What an odd story. Does this man have a criminal past that made LE feel they needed to do that? Usually they are slow to react without a witness IMO!

    This is actually a SC case and not FL. Nothing new at this point...

    I didn't even notice the FL part, because I know where that area is. This is coastal SC. I have a nephew who lives near there and a niece not too far away. Geesh, the elderly are becoming prey, much like teen girls!

    Signs of a struggle and some blood found and LE hasn't ruled out foul play. Hmmm... Very astute.

    That is so sad. This poor woman had enough problems and was a weak prey for somebody. I haven't seen anything from family, just friends. I wonder if she had anybody else?

    Nothing new here? Is anyone looking for this poor lady? I hope she will be found soon. It doesn't look good for her.

    Hmmm 3 dogs.... how close is the nearest neighbor? No one heard a window being broken, or dogs barking?? Granted my neighbors might not pay attention to my dogs barking, but with a struggle inside the home, someone wasn't afraid of those dogs. Must be known to the dear lady. I can't imagine a stranger wouldn't have harmed the dogs, locked them in a room, or something. But to come into her home, one dog managed to get outside, and two others left in the home. Wonder what breed of dogs?

    And don't be making me have nightmares!! I feel my dogs are my first line of defense. I can't have that idea smashed to smitherines!

    Those same friends who reported her missing say they fear the worst because the 77-year-old woman needed oxygen to survive.
    They say she never left home without her oxygen tank or her three dogs. The dogs and the oxygen were still in her home when Green visited.
    "She would have never gone and left her dogs, I know that for sure," said Meeks.

    "They came over here with the detectives and got a search warrant for the house, went through all of our belongings, and took him for questioning," the woman said. "They took towels and blankets and stuff because he had done a load of laundry so they wanted to test all that."

    However, when they checked on her Tuesday, they found the front door window shattered and what they said was an "obvious sign of a struggle." CCSO Major Eric Watson said the shattered glass was consistent with someone trying to enter the home.

    Mudgett and her car were gone, and her three dogs were left there alone.

    Mudgett lives alone in her mobile home on Toogoodoo Road, with family out of state, Gordon says.

    Mudgett's next door neighbor was taken in for questioning, and many of his belongings were confiscated. He's been released, but authorities have yet to say if he has been cleared in the investigation.

    Church members like James Freston brought memories they have of the woman who lived in Hollywood.
    “Ten days ago today she wrote me a four-page letter, and it was the sweetest letter I had ever been written,” said Freston. “It read in part ‘No matter how hard your day may seem, our heavenly father has not forgotten us, in fact, he loves us, he loves you, with an infinite heart.’”




    *snipped*


    Freston says Mudgett sat in the same seat every Sunday, today church members left the seat empty in her honor.
    “She usually sits in that same corner in the back, and usually has a couple of guests of with her,” said Chris Cooper, a member of the church and friend of Mudgett. “Seeing that she is gone leaves a hole, and we definitely have a hole here without Julia.”

    So sad and frightening. Why would somebody harm an elderly woman?

    There was a homicide of another 70-year-old woman in Bluffton, SC. That is close to where her car was found. http://www.wnct.com/story/25506607/bluffton-police-investigating-elderly-womans-death-as-homicide And this article says this might be linked to another cased in South Carolina: http://www.islandpacket.com/2014/05/13/3108220/investigation-into-suspicious.html?sp=/99/257/

    And Eatonton, GA is only about 3 hours away. GA GA - Shirley Dermond (Abduction), 87, Putnam County, 2 - 4 May 2014 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
