Wrongful Death Exhumed Body Could Solve 40-Year-Old Mystery

It’s a mystery that began more than four decades ago, when the body of a young woman was found murdered in the hills of Eastern Kentucky.

To this day that victim has never been identified. People locally call her the “Mountain Jane Doe.” Her body was buried in a cemetery in the mountains of Harlan. Now investigators have exhumed the woman, hoping that act could provide some answers in a case that has long since gone cold.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Jane Doe’s body was found in June of 1969, partially nude. It appeared she had been stabbed to death on Pine Mountain where her body was discovered. She was in her late teens or early 20s and even now, little is know about her identity.

Author Darla Jackson is hoping to help answer that question.

“Everyone deserves a name. Everyone deserves that respect. I don’t feel that this young girl was given much respect in her life,” says Jackson.

Darla Jackson was fascinated by the story. In her book “Harlan County Haunts” she even talks about the case. The author worked with several agencies to get the woman’s body exhumed, hoping DNA could help provide clues.

“Because of science and technology, with certainty, she can be identified with a match from a family member,” says Jackson.

And now Jackson’s dream is close to reality. She was on site Wednesday as State Police and the Harlan County Coroner removed the victim’s body from it’s burial site.

The woman’s DNA will be entered into a national database, hopefully bringing an eventual end to a decades-old mystery.

“She needs a name. She has one. People know her. She has family. They’re somewhere and they need to know what happened to her,” says Jackson.

Private Detective: Father and Son Accused of Stealing From Toy For Tots

A marine and his son who were in charge of collecting money and toys for needy children are now facing major theft charges.

The two are accused of stealing thousands of dollars from toys for tots and all coming at the expense of children who may have gone without last Christmas.

Bob Graham who is in charge of the program is upset that Rusty Gaines and his son Josh Gaines betrayed his trust and the trust of his program at the peril of needy children.

“A lot of parents give their children a dollar to put in the donation jar and for somebody to go along and steal from these kids is really bad,” says Graham. “It really hurt, I mean he not only stole money from our league, from the state league, but a person has to be pretty low to take away a child’s Christmas.”

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

On Tuesday Gaines and son were indicted by a Franklin County grand jury for thefts totaling more than $40,000.

Rusty Gaines was the treasurer for the Lieutenant Presley O’Bannon detachment of the Marine Corps League from 2012 to June of this year. His son Josh was the Toys for Tots coordinator. Joel Jennings, another marine, says that he noticed some financial discrepancies in June.
“That’s when we realized that what should have been a $20,000 account was actually a negative $1,000 account,” says Jennings.

Jennings says money wasn’t deposited into the “Toys for Tots” account in 2013 and no toys were distributed for Christmas.

Josh Gaines was the only person trained to run the “Toys for Tots” program. In losing him, the program can no longer use that name. Now they are continuing the mission of collecting toys under the name “Toys for Kids” until a replacement can be trained.

Despite the setback, the group is continuing their goal of making Christmas merry for needy children.

“The overall mission has not changed, we’re still here, still collecting, still out in the cold, to make sure that the needy children of Franklin and Anderson County do have a good Christmas,” says Jennings

Donations are being accepted at the Frankfort Big Lots on Black Friday and the Lawrenceburg Walmart on Saturday December 6.
