Clothing & Personal Items
Three boys playing in a rear field at 1095 Vicksburg Drive found bones lying on the open ground. The area is in a subdivision about 300 to 400 yards west of I-65, and about a quarter-mile south of the Greenwood interchange. Greenwood Police Department detectives were called and conducted a complete search. Over the course of a month, 150 bones were recovered. The only whole bones were femurs. Many of the bones had cut marks.
The remains, which had most likely been left on the surface of the farm field used to grow corn and soybeans, had not been there much longer than 3 years. The remains were widely scattered by tilling and plowing. Detectives theorized that farming equipment plowing the field had cut the bones and moved them around. Detectives walked the field with metal detectors but couldn't find a purse, personal belongings or a weapon such as gun, knife or spent cartridges. The lack of personal items heightened the theory that the victim died as a result of foul play.
