Two women face murder charges after body found in Towns Co. well
By B.J. Williams Editor

HIAWASSEE - Two Hiawassee women, already in the Towns County Detention Center on other charges, now face murder charges after authorities found human remains in a well east of the city.

The remains were recovered around 7 p.m. Thursday, according to Towns County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Jeff Edge.

Edge said in a press statement that investigators with the Towns County Sheriff's Office acted on two leads Wednesday, one that led them to the remains in the well and the other that led them to question the suspects in the case.

According to Edge, Brittany Elizabeth Ledford, 21, and Rebecca Ann Stokes, 32, both of Hiawassee, were charged with murder after the two confessed to the crime.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, at the request of Towns County Sheriff Chris Clinton, came to Hiawassee to assist with the investigation and the recovery of the remains. Edge said because of the proximity of the well to a house and the need to preserve evidence, the task of recovering the body required many hours and much manpower and equipment.

Authorities have not said if the body found in the well is that of Diane "Dee Dee" Adams Donaldson. Donaldson's family went to authorities on June 24, saying they were concerned about her whereabouts. Towns County authorities had been treating her disappearance as a missing persons case.

Edge said the remains found in the well were taken to the GBI Crime Lab for positive identification.

Yes.....This is a sad and tragic event. At least it was not a Floridian, move-in, retiree or tourist involved.

I'm really surprised this type of thing does not happen more. Decades of cousins marring have lowered the IQ's of the local to such a point understanding the difference between right a wrong is difficult for many. It has not happened much the last fifty years but before that the damage to the gene pool was done. The only reason Towns County schools don't score the highest in the State is because the kids of these Large local families lack the IQ's. We have no minorities or the problems of inner city life here yet we score on par with many of those schools on State and national tests.
This is not a derogatory statement. It's just the truth.

I don't know about that. Union County has just as many of the people you describe and they do score among the highest in the state on standardized tests.

Back on topic, I think the woman who was murdered must have known too much about the illegal things those girls were doing.

I heard that one of them already had multiple warrants, if not both of them. and I wouldn't be surprised if this poor old lady knew too much, both of those girls liked to run their mouths...about everything

I understand now that instead of taking fingerprints of the TRASH in Towns County, they take prints of their Butt Cracks. You can go into the Sand Bar or Blue Otter and see the lineup on a Friday or Saturday night.

What in the hell does that have to do with a dead person in the bottom of a well? How about showing a little respect!

The students in Towns County do score the highest in the state. I don't know where you got your info but it is wrong.

Wrong. The SAT scores are below State average. The ACT scores are below average. The real dropout rate is below average. The EOCT scores are about the state average. The State of Georgia is ranked 46th out of 50 states on test scores.
The one exception to the SAT and ACT test scores will be this next class. There are several gifted students who will raise the average for the class.
If you compare the large local clan family's children to the move in kids on National standardized tests, the difference is about 20%. If you compare the GPA's they are about the same. Why you ask? Because the local children are helped, plain and simple. When they are required to test on their own they fail miserable. When they are placed in a college setting they are lost without the help of a friendly teacher to make the bad grade better.
The inbreeding that took place here in the last 200 years is one of the biggest factors in the low IQ's. In the past 75 years many have married outside the family which has helped. The damage can not ever be fixed. Big clans and low IQ's are a fact of life in the Mountains. Well documented and a sad but true fact.

You may be inbred if you truly believe that BS. Have a conversation with the great Jerry Taylor or Tommy Flanagan both of which have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the history of TC. I think u will change your mind.
