    Oh Blink — I am crying because this family is so precious and I know that today is a sad day for them but also a day of releif that they can bring Kelly home. I recall her Dad, at the beginning of this case, was just so focused on finding Kelly and bringing her home. He did nothing else for so long. May God wrap his arms around them and comfort them.

    Yes PookyB. I can tell you from first hand experience, I have never met a family that did not prefer there loved one be found, regardless of the circumstances, as opposed to never knowing. It is the cruelest of outcomes.
    Peace, Prayers and Love to the Curran/Morris Families.

    Hi Blink,

    I was not aware of this case, but reading it, this girl has been missing for over a year, and her husband was arrested right away when they found her. Do you have any idea where she was found?

    I do. Off Tar River Fox Pen in Creedmor.

    From helpfindthemissing.org–http://www.helpfindthemissing.org/forum/showthread.php?p=691954

    “William Scott Morris, 35, of 113 W. Church St., Creedmoor, was taken into custody and charged Tuesday evening. In addition to murder, he also faces a charge of fraudulently burning a dwelling.

    He was being held in the Granville County Detention Center without bond Wednesday afternoon. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 2.

    At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Granville County Sheriff Brindell Wilkins said authorities received information Monday that led them to a wooded area off Sam Moss Hayes Road in Creedmoor, where the remains – identified using dental records – were found Tuesday afternoon.”

    I’m so glad she was found. Home, at last.

    I have several personal friends and colleagues who worked her case. When I tell you after the horror of the front end of this week this news came at the perfect time, would be an understatement. It is why we do what we do.

    I know this case very well…..my daughter lives in Oxford….hubby helped build her house…..almost a duplicate of my daughter’s.
    Thank God she’s finally been found….in an area where animals roam….Fox Pen….a perfect place to dump a body and hoping it wouldb’t be found.
    This has been a week of absolute horror with dead babies found dumped like common trash.
    Kelly never deserved to be another victim of murder…no one does.
    Haven’t they ever heard of D I V O R C E ???

    For the police to arrest and charge the husband so quickly….you can bet they have mega evidence against him…..

    Prayers go to the entire family now…..hoping they have the strength to endure what lies ahead of them.

    Saw where the Father-in-Law is involved in the cover-up of the homicide? What in the world???

    Sadly, I have read the subpoenas in this case. I believe his Father may face obstruction or hindering charges at the least.
    It has not been released what came out of his green pickup that was processed either.

  9. Susan says:

    That (father concealing/obstructing) is classic enabling if ever there was. So completely Tragic. Another beautiful bright life of a woman is extinguished because yet another man looked at his wife and instead of seeing an individual whose life potential and contributions exceed the role of being his wife, he saw only his property. What can we teach our boys and our girls to stop this?

    I am happy to see that Kelly has been found and the husband arrested because I as a Psychic have known from the beginning that her husband killed her.

    I had thought that she was put into a well and I was wrong about the location her body would be found but not in the fact that her husband killed her and set the fire to cover up evidence.
