In from BLAIRSVILLE, Georgia, the body of a young woman missing since New Year’s Day has been found, and the man charged with her disappearance led investigators to her body Monday evening, officials said.

Meredith Emerson was last seen hiking with her dog on Blood Mountain in Georgia on New Year’s Day.
Gary Michael Hilton told authorities where to find the body of 24 year old Meredith Emerson, the University of Georgia alumna who went missing New Year’s Day while hiking in the north Georgia mountains, said John Cagle of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Meanwhile, state and federal authorities said they are trying to determine whether Hilton may have been involved in at least three other killings in two neighboring states.

Investigators found Emerson’s body about 7:30 p.m. Monday, Cagle said, in the 25,000 acre Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area, about 30 miles south of the Union County, Georgia, state park where she went hiking.

Investigators have charged Hilton, 61, with kidnapping with intent to cause bodily injury. She vanished after venturing into the mountains with her dog, Ella. Ella was found Thursday in nearby Forsyth County.

Several witnesses told authorities they saw Hilton and Emerson together, letting their dogs play along a hiking trail in Vogel State Park.

Director Vernon Keenan of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement officials declined to say Monday night whether murder charges are pending against Hilton. They also withheld virtually all details about what Hilton said to authorities and the scene where they found Emerson’s body.

“There’s a lot going on in the case right now, the investigation is still going on,” said Union County District Attorney Stan Gunter. “A lot of decisions have to be made.”

Hilton remained in jail Monday night.

Several hours earlier, he appeared in court in shackles and an orange prison jump suit. He did not speak as Judge Johnie Garmon read the charges against him. Garmon said surveillance video had identified Hilton as he tried to use one of Emerson’s credit cards at a bank in Canton, Georgia on January 5.
Authorities arrested Hilton after finding bloodstained clothes consistent with what Emerson had been wearing when she went missing, according to a criminal warrant filed Saturday.

Investigators also found Emerson’s black leather wallet containing her identification cards in a convenience store trash bin in the Forsyth County city of Cumming, Georgia.

The warrant alleges that Hilton made a phone call Friday from a pay phone at that convenience store.

The bin is next to a grocery store parking lot where Emerson’s Labrador mix was found wandering Friday, the warrant said.

The animal was positively identified through an implanted microchip, according to officials.

When Hilton’s 2001 minivan was searched, agents “determined that the rear seat belt had been cut out,” the warrant said. “Hilton was attempting to vacuum the vehicle and wash portions of it with a bleach and water solution.”

Hilton was taken into custody Friday at a convenience store in suburban Atlanta.

Also Monday, federal, Georgia and North Carolina investigators met in nearby Cleveland, Georgia, to “compare notes” on the Emerson case and a similar case from a few months ago in North Carolina, according to FBI special Agent Greg Jones.

In the North Carolina case, an elderly couple, John and Irene Bryant, disappeared after going for a hike in Mount Pigsah National Forest. Her body was found near the couple’s car. John Bryant’s body has not been found, but Keenan referred to the case Monday night as a “double homicide.”

Investigators have a bank video of a man wearing a yellow jacket, believed to have belonged to John Bryant, while using the Bryant’s ATM card.

Witnesses who saw Hilton on the trail with Emerson on the day she disappeared said he was wearing a yellow jacket.
On Monday night, Keenan said Georgia authorities also plan to meet with law enforcement officials from Florida to share details about a similar killing there.

This is really eerie, Baby Boomers, as I went to college where the Bryants murder was. I could tell you a personal story about that area that would make the hairs on your neck, stand on end!

I hope this gives closure to the families and friends of those that are lost.

Violent deaths are so very hard to cope with. My heart and prayers go out to the families and friends.

It is hard to believe that this elderly man could cause such havoc. I wonder just how many people he has killed in his life time…we may never know, but this man IS a serial killer. And he would have killed again given the chance.

I am glad that he has been stopped.

A Texas couple charged with killing the little girl known as “Baby Grace” now face capital murder charges, after a Texas grand jury upgraded the charges on Wednesday.

art_riley.jpg

Riley Ann Sawyers was moved from Ohio to Texas by her mother.

Prosecutors said they have not decided whether to seek the death penalty against the girl’s mother, Kimberly Dawn Trenor, and Trenor’s husband, Royce Clyde Zeigler II.

Two year old Riley Ann Sawyers was beaten to death and her body was disposed of in Galveston Bay.

Riley’s body was found October 29 by a fisherman on an uninhabited island in the bay. It was wrapped in black plastic bags and stuffed in a blue, plastic bin.

Her identity was not known at first, and police dubbed her “Baby Grace.” Police sketches of the child were widely distributed, and Sheryl Sawyers, the girl’s paternal grandmother, contacted police from her Ohio home to say the drawing resembled her granddaughter. DNA testing confirmed the child’s identity.

Trenor, 19, and Zeigler, 24, were initially charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence.

But since the initial charges were filed last month the investigation has continued and police have gathered additional evidence, in addition to confirming Riley’s identity, said a statement released Wednesday by Galveston County Criminal District Attorney Kurt Sistrunk.

Based on that, the grand jury was asked to upgrade the charges, he said. A three-hour hearing was held Wednesday in which grand jurors heard testimony from five witnesses, including police and FBI investigators and the medical examiner.

The grand jury deliberated for only three minutes Wednesday before upgrading the charges, Sistrunk said.

Police: Mother describes beating of 2-year-old…Bared bone, tiny body led to artist’s perfect picture
Trenor told police Riley had been beaten and thrown across a room and that her head was held under water before she died July 24.

She said the couple hid the girl’s body in a storage shed for one to two months before putting it in the plastic container and dumping it into the bay.

A medical examiner said Riley’s skull was fractured in three places that would have been fatal injuries.

Trenor and the girl moved to Texas from Ohio in May to be with Zeigler, who Trenor had met online.

Sistrunk said the investigation is continuing, and a decision on whether to seek the death penalty will not be made until its conclusion.

I can not read this and not shake my head. And wonder what where they thinking.

There needs to be an agency that will take children from those who are not able to cope with child rearing…or a program that would assist them. A place where people could go or take their chilfren to when they were stressed or out of contoll.

These young people did need help. And now a child is lost forever.

It breaks my heart.

Baby Grace has a name…and a face…

ph2007112601230.jpg

Before dying, 2 year old Riley Ann Sawyers was beaten with belts, picked up by her hair, thrown across the room and held under water, according to an affidavit from the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office.

Police believe 2 year old Riley Ann Sawyers is “Baby Grace.”

The affidavit says the girl’s mother, Kimberly Dawn Trenor, described to police how her daughter died and was put in a plastic storage box that Trenor and her husband, Royce Zeigler, later dumped into a Galveston waterway.

Trenor told police Zeigler tried to commit suicide the weekend before Thanksgiving, and wrote a note that said, “My wife is innocent of the sins that I committed.”

The body of the then, unidentified toddler was found on October 29. A fisherman found Riley’s body stuffed inside a blue storage container that washed up on an uninhabited island in Galveston’s West Bay.

A medical examiner said the child’s skull was fractured, and a forensic dentist estimated her age at 2 to 3 years.

Police dubbed the child “Baby Grace.” A police artist’s sketch of her was widely circulated in the news media and prompted a call to Galveston police from Riley’s grandmother in Ohio, who had not seen the girl in months.

On Saturday, police arrested Trenor and Zeigler on charges of injuring a child and tampering with physical evidence, the sheriff’s department said. Their bonds were set at $350,000 each.

ph2007112601241_stmb.jpg
The affidavit, obtained by CNN, says when police interviewed Trenor on November 23, she “gave a voluntary statement on video with her attorney present in which she describes her involvement, with Royce Zeigler, in the physical abuse, death and disposal of the remains of her daughter, Riley Ann Sawyers.”

Trenor’s statement said on July 24, she and Zeigler both beat the child with leather belts and held her head under water in the bathtub. She said Zeigler picked the girl up by her hair and also threw her across the room, slamming her head into the tile floor.

After her daughter died, Trenor’s statement said, she and Zeigler went to a Wal~Mart that night and bought the Sterilite container, a shovel, concrete mix, and other supplies.

The statement said the box containing the child’s body was hidden in a storage shed for “one to two months.” Then, Trenor said, she and Zeigler carried it to the Galveston Causeway and tossed it in, and she saw it drifting away.

Riley Ann’s father, Robert Sawyers, on Monday tearfully remembered her as a “fun loving girl … with a big imagination.” Riley was “very active, very hyper, but also very well behaved,” Sawyers told reporters in Mentor, Ohio.

She would play “with a water hose … spraying the whole patio soaking wet until she was done with it,” he said, as he sat behind two photographs of his daughter, a toddler with wispy blond curls.

Robert Sawyers’ mother, Sheryl Sawyers, said the family was “devastated” to learn that police believe Riley is dead.

“It’s hard to think that I’ll never see her again,” she said, clutching a red Elmo doll she had planned to give Riley for Christmas.

Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Department said Monday that authorities are “fairly confident” that the toddler whose body was found on October 29 is Riley Ann Sawyers.

DNA analysis is still in progress to confirm the identification. The results will be available in two to three weeks, Tuttoilmondo said.

Tuttoilmondo said Riley is originally from Mentor, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb, and that “she and her mother came down to Texas earlier this year.”

The toddler was last seen in Texas “three or four months ago,” Tuttoilmondo said, although he did not know by whom.

Tuttoilmondo said police did investigate whether Child Protective Services had taken Riley away, something the mother had reportedly alleged. Of that report, Tuttoilmondo said, “What we believe is that is not what happened.”

The affidavit said Trenor admitted that after the body was found, Zeigler had her type up a fake letter from the Ohio Department of Children’s Services saying that Riley was to be taken away.

Trenor left Ohio in late May, after filing an allegation of domestic violence against Robert Sawyers and reaching a joint voluntary agreement that gave her custody of Riley and gave Robert Sawyers visitation rights, the Sawyers’ family lawyer said Monday.

“She disappeared,” Laura DePledge said Monday at the Ohio news conference with the Sawyers.

Sheryl Sawyers said Monday that she saw widely distributed police sketches of “Baby Grace” and contacted Galveston police in November. The girl in the police sketches strongly resembles photos of Riley.

“No, I never did think it would end up like this,” Sheryl Sawyers said Monday, eyes welling. “I guess knowing is better than not knowing.”

The girl’s family in Ohio has been “very helpful” in this case, Tuttoilmondo said, adding that the FBI and a Galveston County police officer visited the family in Ohio on Sunday.

DePledge said Riley was the product of a “teenage pregnancy.” Trenor and Robert Sawyers were together for two years as a result of the pregnancy, DePledge said, during which time they lived with Sheryl Sawyers.

DePledge said Monday that the family, whose grief she described as “simply overwhelming,” wants Riley’s body returned to Ohio for a memorial service. “What Riley needs is to be brought home,” she said. “I think this family needs some closure.”

Tuttoilmondo asked anyone who knew the child or her family to help detectives reconstruct the events of Riley’s short life.

The toddler’s case has touched even hardened police officers, he said. “Any way you look at it, we carry a piece of her with us, and we’ll always carry a little piece of her with us,” he said Monday.

ph2007112601244_stmb.jpg

He held up a small, pink and white shoe identical to those the child was wearing when she was found. “That says it all. A little bitty shoe.”

I can’t imagine anyone doing this to a child…

I just can’t imagine it…I think there should be an eye for an eye in this case…

~The Baby Boomer Queen~

In CASSVILLE, Missouri, two men were charged Saturday with murder and rape in the death of a 9 year old girl whose body was found the day before in a hillside cave in southwest Missouri.

Barry County prosecutors charged the girl’s 25 year old stepfather, David Spears, and his friend, Chris Collings, 32, with one count each of first-degree murder, forcible rape and statutory rape in the death of Rowan Ford.

Rowan’s body was found Friday in a cave in a remote part of McDonald County, about 10 miles south of the village of Stella, where she lived with her mother and David Spears. Her disappearance last weekend led to an intensive search by dozens of officers from three counties and 50 FBI agents and specialists.

Barry County Sheriff Mick Epperly said Collings confessed to authorities on Friday.

Based in part on Collings’ statement, the affidavit Epperly sent to the prosecutor alleges that the men took Rowan from her home to a camping trailer where Collings lived in Barry County, Epperly said.

There, Epperly said, both men raped Rowan and one of them then strangled her with a cord. Epperly did not say which one of the men strangled the girl.

Collings’ brother, Greg Horton, 44, said he didn’t believe the allegations.

“I don’t believe he could do something like this. He has three kids of his own,” Horton said. Collings’ children are all younger than 10 and live in Arkansas with their mother, who is separated from Collings, Horton said.

Collings was being held in Barry County jail. Epperly said he didn’t know if Collings had an attorney.

Myrna Spears, David Spears’ mother, said Saturday her son did not have a lawyer. He was being held in Newton County jail.

The mother discovered her daughter was missing about 9 a.m. November 3, after working a night shift at a Wal-Mart in a nearby town.

David Spears initially told investigators he had gone out with friends the night of November 2, leaving Rowan alone after she fell asleep. He said he returned around midnight but did not check on the girl, authorities said.

Authorities said he later acknowledged he had gone out a second time, around 1:30 a.m. on November 3, after calling his mother and asking to borrow her sport utility vehicle. His mother has said she watched TV but did not check on Rowan while she waited for Spears to return. He was gone for five and a half hours.

Spears previously said that it was wrong for him to leave the girl alone and that he initially withheld some information about his whereabouts that night because he was afraid authorities would suspect him in her disappearance.

Colleen and David Spears reported Rowan missing about 6:50 p.m. on November 3, after spending much of the day looking for the girl at the homes of acquaintances where they thought she might have gone.

Tips Pour In From Around Country In Baby Grace Case

FROM HOUSTON, Texas, hundreds of tips from around the country have poured in after authorities asked for help in identifying the remains of a young girl discovered inside a storage box that washed ashore on Galveston Bay.

Sketches of the child, who police call “Baby Grace,” were released Friday.

If you want to see these pictures…here is a posting of them…

“We’re sorting through a lot of leads,” said Major Ray Tuttoilmondo with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. “Nothing has hit a home run yet.”

Forensic dental examination has narrowed the girl’s age to between 2 and 3 years. She is described as white, 32 to 35 inches tall and 25 to 30 pounds. She had waist-long, wavy blond or light brown hair. She was wearing a Target-brand pink, flowing skirt, a pink or red shirt and white light-up tennis shoes with purple flowers on them.

Several callers believe that the child’s body may be that of Madeleine McCann, a 4-year-old British girl whose disappearance from a resort hotel in Portugal in May has made international headlines, Tuttoilmondo said.

“Based on the totality of the circumstances, we do not believe it’s Madeleine,” Tuttoilmondo said and added that his office is working with the FBI to completely rule out the possibility.

Local authorities and the FBI are going through missing person reports from across country in an effort to identify the girl.

“It’s a slow process,” Tuttoilmondo said. “We have to call the original investigating agency and see if anything matches up.”

Galveston County Crime Stoppers set up a memorial fund to pay for her funeral as well as an account to offer a reward for anyone who helps to solve this crime.

A prayer vigil was held Sunday afternoon.

A fisherman found the girl late Monday night. Her body was inside a blue plastic utility box that washed ashore along the Intercoastal Waterway.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the child had been dead for at least two weeks and sustained a skull fracture. The cause of death has not been determined but authorities are treating the case as a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Galveston County sheriff’s Office at 409.766.2222, the agency’s tip line at 866.248.8477 or any Crime Stoppers organization.
