There is so much more testing they can do now than back when that happened, DNA and more. They definitely should reopen the case and go back and do some more testing.

Great idea Booneville girl. I'm sure that never occurred to the police....

If the TPD had spent as much time on Leigh's case as they did making sure I wasn't skating downtown in my late teens through early twenties, this case would likely be solved already. If she'd been from a rich family this case would most likely be solved.

i had recently went in a group on the internet and i read a bunch of stuff on this, and there is so many theorys it seems. a few did stick out though one guy said about the fresh concrete at there house, one said the parking lot of the high school which was being poured that day, and then one guy posted this which i dont know im just going to copy and paste this..
if they took the time to pull all the rocks out of that ditch next door to her house; they might find something; it was kinda odd she disappeared the same time they were filling the ditch.. i was in that circle almost everyday and lived on lumpkin caticornered to that field most of my life..
this is probably no help but thought i would post!

Nobody was pouring concrete that day. For Christ' Sake!
It was in the middle of Hurricane Andrew! You don't pour concrete in the f**king rain!
If her body were in a ditch near her home, don't you think someone would have reported it?
Or the vultures would have been a clue?
Do you realize how hot it was in Tupelo in September & October? I know. I searched throughout the County on foot for a month and a half.

Mr. Donald, has anyone put a boot up Jim Johnson or the Chief of Police in Tupelo's rear to reopen this case & check DNA of the blood vs. the suspect your exwife kept mentioning?
I just cant believe that TPD has seemed to brush this case under the rug. If they have suspects and took samples from the items in the home with blood on them then by gosh they need to be doing DNA and anyone that is "innocent" shouldnt have a problem getting a swab to help the case.
I have 4 babies of my own & I can not even imagine the pain you deal with daily and on special days. God bless you sir.

A guy I know Terri Wayne Robbins says he knows what happened and saw her buried. I don't know if he is talking out of his butt or not but he has stuck to his story this whole time. I would contact him.

If you know that this guy is boasting about a crime occurring why haven't you reported him?
How am I supposed to know that you don't have some sort of vendetta against Mr. Robbins?
Isn't there a spine donor in sight?
Don't you have an anonymous tip line in Mississippi? If this were your child, wouldn't you want the police or FBI notified?
Do the right thing.

Well, you are here and so is the detective. There is the info. Instead of insinuating I am spineless why arn't you in baldwyn asking this guy? The tip line is a joke.

It would be agonizing enough to have your child taken but not to know where she is. I couldn't deal with it. I still pray there is closure to this case. May God be with you Mr Occhi.
