    I'm from this area but don't know these people. I can only "try" to give help on the area.

    Thanks! I am completely unfamiliar with the area (being on the other side of the U.S.) and I have to admit, it took me much longer than it should have figure out what location to put in the thread title. Am I correct in saying that White Post is in Virginia, but her remains were found across state lines in West Virginia? Between the unincorporated towns, the two different investigating counties, and the different states, I was :confused:

    Yes, White Post is in VA. And the remains were in WV. I'm not familiar with the area that her remains were found. My niece posted the article and it came up on my Facebook page as "Romney, WV".

    I'm not sure why Romney plays a role, unless it was just a post from their news?

    I can try and help you post a map. Do you just want a map of area? Any particular cities you'd like to focus on and make sure are included?

    edit to add: or do you want a map of the specific area she was found?

    I would truly appreciate help with posting a map!
    The victim was from White Post, VA. I know this is off 522, near Winchester,VA
    Victim's remains were found "near" Scotty's Gully Road. I can't find this on Google maps?

    I'm almost positive I had found it last night & should have posted the map right then. I had to clear my cookies in order to view an article for another WS case, and now I can't find it again. Give me a bit longer...I'll keep looking :)

    Per link, http://www.your4state.com/news/virg...w-details-emerge-leading-up-to-alleged-murder June 23

    Caretaker Charlene Hopkins said:
    - June 18, Fri eve., Hopkins took care of Peg Sinclair.
    - Sinclair had diarrhea & soiled her bed sheets & rugs
    - Sinclair cut her finger & blood "dripped on the floor and was slung across the walls."
    - She threw out the sheets & put rugs in her car to take to the cleaners.
    - She left a note about her clean up efforts, inc'g. bleach, for Sinclair's dau.
    - Sat 2:00am, she left Sinclair's home, picked up hitchhiker, drove w her ~ 1 hr. to Capon Bridge, WV just a few miles away from Scotty's Gully, in order to meet a "male friend" (per below)

    Warrants:
    - said Hopkins later said male friend, whom she & hitchhiker met w in Capon Bridge, offered to dispose of sheets.
    - focused on Hopkins' 2008 Chevy Trial blazer [sic] & her iPhone.
    - noted Hopkins is last person to have contact w Sinclair.

    Sinclair's dau told LE:
    - Fri eve, she got home ~8:30 p.m., found Hopkins still there, w "Sinclair in her bedroom with the door locked." (?)
    - Sat 4:00am, she saw Hopkins' note, phoned Hopkins who explained.
    - Sat 11:00am, on noting Sinclair not in her room, dau reported her missing.

    LE found:
    - what's believed to be blood in Hopkins' car, "cleaned meticulously," w large white stain on a seat.
    - in Hopkins' home, shoes wet w bleach-cleaning, a bottle of bleach on counter, floor mats from Hopkins' car drying off, & some of Sinclair's personal documents in kitchen.
    - remains near Scotty's Gully Road, LE believing they were placed there same day reported missing, June 18.

    LE media release:
    "the suspect(s) burned some of the evidence and body parts of the victim near the area where the body was found."

    Cpt. Donald Lang, of Frederick County Sheriff's Office was quoted briefly at link:
    - Hopkins & Sinclair met a few yrs ago.
    - Hopkins is not a reg. nurse.
    - Initial reports said Sinclair walked away from home and may have had dementia, but LE cannot "officially confirm."
    - No other arrests have been made.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________
    Sad, sad, sad. RIP Ms Sinclair.

    At least, LE has already connected a lot of the dots needed to prosecute.

    I can't believe I've never heard about this. I don't live far from Romney, across the MD border, and own property in the same county.
