Well, it's very possible that she's dead. Blood stains were found all over in the house, and she's been gone for a very long time. However, I find it very creepy how her glasses were mailed to her mom and stepfather. It's disturbing.

That is really sad. So you say there was fresh cement at her home at the time of her dissapearing? I wonder why something like that was never "really" looked at?

Looks like they would have dug the fresh cement out and looked for her. Wonder where her parents are now? This is very upsetting.

I was never interviewed or asked any questions by the police... and i find myself wondering if between myself and the rest of us that knew her if we could put the pieces together. I urge you or anyone else out there that knew her when we were growing up to please, please contact me. I cannot move past this no matter how i try... not until there is some kind of answer.

I remember this when it happened. Everyone was very suspicious of the mom. Frankly I was too after I heard an interview with her. I would think she would be out at the forefront of this investigation and not sitting back quietly. Something just isn't right.

I was in Pontotoc County Jail one time and this guy said his wife was crazy. So they locked her up. She was telling them that her husband killed Leigh and put her in their septic tank. They never looked. Also my brother dated her in Jr. High.
