This story fascinates me. Such a big mystery for a small southern town. It saddens me that such a prominent figure in the town was not given justice to have her disappearance properly and professionally investigated by the FBI, as the local authorities were not trained or perhaps were too afraid to seek the truth.
I look forward to going to Camden this summer to see her home and reflect on the fact that money stood in the way of truth.
