Seven-year-old Liddie and her mom

What happened?

On January 26, 2001, Jonah Dale arrived at the home of his 25-year-old daughter, Missy Hammond, and found her dead in her bed.

Missy's seven-year-old daughter, Liddie, was also in the home, bewildered after apparently spending the night with her mother's body.

  • What happened to this young mother?
  • Who could've wanted to hurt her?
  • What, if anything, did the child see and hear?

Physical evidence was collected at the scene and witnesses are being questioned.

No suspects were immediately identified, but Missy had an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a doting neighbor, and a married ex-boyfriend.

The investigation is ongoing.
