  • Case History

    Two men on a Memorial Day weekend fishing trip discovered the victim's nude torso floating in a desolate section of Academy Creek. Her head, both feet, both hands, and upper left forearm were missing when authorities pulled her from the tidal creek. Predatory animals living in the creek and the neighboring salt marsh most likely were responsible.

    Pathologists cannot prove the woman was slain. Nor can they say that she died of natural causes or an accident. An autopsy revealed traces of cocaine in the woman's liver.

    Police think her death is linked to the killings of two Brunswick women and a 2-month-old baby from May through November 1993 in the same area. On November 27, 1997, a former Brunswick sanitation worker was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility parole, after pleading guilty to murder charges in those three slayings. No charges have been filed against him in the unidentified woman's case, but he is still considered a prime suspect in her death.

    The victim was laid to rest in Greenwood Cemetery.
