Re: Identification of Human Remains
On February 26, 2010, the Office of the Medical Examiner for Maryland advised the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation that the human remains located in Snow Hill on February 19 were the remains of Christine Marie Sheddy.
Sheddy has been missing since November 14, 2007. Since that time, the case has been handled as a “missing person” case by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation. Assisting in the investigation is the Maryland State Police and the Office of the State’s Attorney for Worcester County.
No cause of death has yet been determined. All involved law enforcement agencies are treating this as a suspicious death.
Because this is a pending investigation, no further details will be disclosed at this time.

Arrest of a Familiar Name
Not to correct SA Joel Todd, but Christine was last seen the evening of November 12, 2007, which is believed to be the night she was murdered at the Byrd Road Farm.
While I respect the release, I have first hand knowledge that 3 detectives from WCBI were removed from this case so you will not find me congratulating that agency. Out of respect for Christine and her family, I will leave it at that for now.
Justin Michael Hadel, a guest at the farm home shared by Clarence “Jr” Jackson and his girlfriend Tia Johnson, was arrested yesterday in Tomball, Texas on a child obligation and fugitive warrant.
There is no further comment on any possible involvement in Christine’s murder.
Clarence Jackson is currently incarcerated in Hawkins County, TN for a burglary and arson conviction.
