Message from NC Wanted

Early this afternoon I have received this message from NC Wanted. Let me show it to you. - BW -


ALERT: Skeletal remains of a woman found in Pennsylvania might have ties to North Carolina. Authorities describe the woman as white, approximately 30-40 years old, with brown hair and a slight build.

NC WANTED currently covers three missing women fitting this general description.

Welcome - I see you found the "comments" button. Thank you for taking the time to click it.

I have been debating a few hours after receiving this NC Wanted Alert whether to post it or not. I decided to see if it would draw comments. I am disappointed.

So here's the answer to your assumed question.

We, the Friends of Debbie Key, believe at this time that the human remains discovered in this alert are NOT those of our friend DK, due to the age of the body.

"Age of the body" to be defined as not how old the person was when she died, but how long the body has been dead. The remains are too recent to be Debbie.

However, it is the decision of Yours Truly to cooperate with NC Wanted in the investigation of this case.

Congratulations on finding the comment button. Please tell all your friends about it. It has come to my attention that not everyone knows about this.

Thank for your interest.

Did anyone ever think to analyze the dirt that was dug up under Dalzell's house in the crawl space where the cadaver dog reacted? It would seem like a no-brainer, but from some of the stories I've read on unsolved-crimes sites, nothing surprises me anymore.

Perhaps you could leave a message on the blog proper telling people that comments are welcome and how to proceed. Also inform them that they must click on Anonymous, if they are not using Blogger/Google option, before clicking on 'publish your comment.' I've recently learned this feat myself. Sometimes people try something and if they don't get it the first time, they give up...

Whoever you are, Anonymous, I appreciate what you're giving me.

Good question about the soil. This is the first question anyone asked me in here that I didn't have an answer for. I'll ask John Allore about that.

Do you think maybe we can get together a workshop about how to do comments in a blog?

No, I wouldn't tell them that they "must" click on Anonymous. That's optional.

Bill Widman said...

Okay-- I didn't know you can click "Anonymous" if you don't have a Blogger / Google account, and it will still enter your comment. Now I know.

If you are too shy to reveal your identity, I still want to hear from you, as long as it's appropriate.

Still don't know who those remains belong to that they found in PA, but I'm finding some interesting stuff about it.

Bill, this one you can print.

- Just wondering if there was any news on those remains. Also, did you contact John Allore about those soil samples?

Maybe a link to the blog on Debbie's mainpage would be helpful. I have been aware of Debbie's site for a while now but only recently discovered this blog.

Bill Widman said...

Gee, it never occured to me that someone might not know to click the "about" button to reach the blog, but I will consider your suggestion. I was thinking it would be cool to display the other blog articles about Debbie where the blog button for the website is.

As for the remains discovered in PA, I have read that the police up there have identified them but are not saying who it is until they have contacted the family.

By the way, another body has been found today off I-85 near the NC and VA state line. You can read about it in the NC Wanted website.

Still waiting to hear about the soil from under the "Bad Dream House."

Bill Widman said...

I heard back from John, who said the soil was sprayed with luminol to look for traces of blood, but no samples were taken to a lab to be analyzed.

I have just read a blog by Lisa, the sister of Allison Jackson-Foy. Were those remains that you wrote about ever identified and the information made available to the public?

Bill Widman said...

No, the information has not been made public, only that they have an ID now, but are not saying who it is. That is why NC Wanted has not posted anything about it yet. I think it is due to the family's request for privacy.

As for the website blog of Allison Jackson Foy, you may have seen my inquiry there, which still has not been responded to.

NC Wanted and I have been keeping up with each other pretty well concerning this case. Lisa's last entry is dated Jan 10, and there is no mention at all of the remains found in PA.

So I noticed.

Bill, I posted another comment earlier regarding information on the Charley Project link...did you receive it?

Bill Widman said...

Yes Anonymous, I have received that comment today, but decided not to include it here, due to sensitive information. You have made a statment that I want to check out very carefully before I respond to it. Suffice it to say that I am looking into what you said.
Thank you!
