On her family. They have borne this. None of the LE have done any good. No thanks to them if it is her body that was found.

if you really think about it....it just doesnt seem random....like they would have to know her schedule..i.e.walking...i mean, who just cruises down the other end of jones creek??? and then to cut across 325 to nottley damn to ivy log?? they would have to know the area at least a little....and it doesnt seem like they would have stopped between point a to point b....pretty direct...like no pit stops.....just sayin

Whoever it is, now they can be put to rest and a family get some closure. Maybe there will be some clues and they can put this murders where they belong.

The man who already killed himself last year right? Or am I not understanding your post? Think his last name was Carrigan.

In any case, if this is Kristi I hope the killer goofed up big time and left something on her or under her that leaves no doubt as to who did it. Once investigated very well that is. Dead or alive it would be good to know so that if it wasn't that Carrigan guy the GBI knows to keep looking.

How many hours did you spend searching?
How many hours did you spend passing out missing flyers?
How many hours did you spend worrying about the family?
How many hours did you help with anything?
UCSO and GBI have never put this missing woman to rest.
Besides, no one knows if it is Kristi or not.
Until then, shut up.

(IF) it is Kristi's remains, you hit the nail squarely on the head. My husband and I were just talking about this same thing last night .... we both believe it was a planned abduction and it was someone she knew either now or in her past. My husband also said that whoever abducted her would have had to know the area well.

I suppose it will have to be the family to catch her abductor or a hired private eye.

My fly on the wall tells me that once the body is ID'ed, this investigation is going to take a turn in which no one ever predicted or imagined.

IF the GBI investigated Carrigan (and all his vehicles) thoroughly there would have had to be some type of evidence via DNA, blood (luminol), hair, fibers etc that would have connected him to her abduction IF he had abducted her .... however, all the similarities of her abduction and his modus operandi are indeed spooky.

I wonder if the GBI or the Cherokee County NC sheriff ever asked the lady walker in Ranger if the person who tried to run her over was Carrigan? That information was never publicized.

Moccasin road is mostly in Ga. Moccasin creek starts way up in the Bellview section of NC then crosses into GA where it runs into the Nottley River at about the GA NC line.

Now that you mention it, I never read that either. The thought did go through my mind as to what she had to say. Now that is another family that needs prayer, IF any proof is there that Carrigan did it that is. For that family there has been no lack of heartache these past 5 or so years. Nuff said on that.

One other point for now, going along with what you pointed out, is nobody has come right out and said that Carrigan was 100% cleared in this Kristi Cornwell issue either.

Time will tell. Thanks for your reply!

I did spend hours doing all those things and MORE for your information. LE blew this just like they did Meredith's case. Sorry if that fact is not to your liking, but it is a fact. LE may have good intentions, but that doesn't change the fact that they are inept. I pray this isn't Kristi, I pray she is safe somewhere and comes home. But whatever happens, it will be due to the family's efforts and not LE.

GBI's forensic pathologist has positively identified remains found Saturday in Union County as those of Kristi Cornwell, missing since August 2009.

I have this feeling it might be Kristi; I am sorry for all the pain her family has gone through. Her mother lost her own mother this past week. I am sure she feels she can take no more. I pray for her and ask that the rest of you to do the same.
