  1. The elderly was murdered, pieces of her body weren’t found until years later(miles away from her home). Her home still stands and multiple families have lived there since her murder. The city park she is “claimed” to roam is 3 miles from her home and about 25 -30 in the opposite direction of where they found her remains. Thus story is bogus!
