    TBI is asking for help in identifying this woman. She was found on March 9 in SummitvilleCave, and the body was apparently burned.

    snipped...Kristin Helm with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said the autopsy performed Sunday found the woman died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Investigators believe she was killed somewhere else and dumped near the old rock quarry near Summitville Road in Summitville, where the body was found Saturday afternoon.

    The victim was also partially burned at the scene
    , according to investigators.

    Seems to me this has to be someone local to even know where the cave is. But perhaps the person hasn't been reported missing yet?

    I wonder if the dentures can be identified somehow?

    I agree, it has to be someone local. Its not that far from here, and not 'everyone' knows about the 'caves'.
    Summitville is on the way to McMinnville Tn, which has it's own set of crime issues. (they call it McMethville) *no offense to anyone living there without the problem*

    So, dentures could be used in identification, yes? And idk if that even gives an approximate age, as there are younger and younger folks with dentures, right?

    So sad, hope she is identified soon.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation overnight positively identified the female murder victim found shot and burned in Coffee County as Connie Lou Brown, 51, of McMinnville. She has no fixed street address. At this time, no arrests have been made in the case.

    I'm so glad she was identified quickly! I lost track of things for a few weeks, so thanks for all who posted!

    Unfortunately, there seem to be no leads in the case:

    This link will take you to a news article and video about the remains found. This was before she was identified, but it shows the area she was found. It looks creepy as heck. Also, interviews the man who found her. I feel for him.

    Next I found this, which is after the remains have been identified as Connie Lou Brown's. There is an interview with her daughter in this video.
