Murder in the murderer is no such ruinous thought as poets and romancers will have it; it does not unsettle him, or fright him from his ordinary notice of trifles; it is an act quite easy to be contemplated.
Gearen, a legal secretary, and her 2-year-old daughter, Kyra, were staying with friends at a beach house on Crystal Beach on July 14 when Gearen walked outside a little more than a minute ahead of her friends at 11:56 p.m., Tuttoilmondo said. The friends heard a gate at the top of the stairs close and she was gone by the time they reached the bottom of the steps. "It happened in a minute and a half," Tuttoilmondo said. "She just vanished from this earth." Campers discovered Gearen's body in the surf about 6:30 a.m. The autopsy showed she had been raped, beaten and strangled, but investigators believe she put up a fight, said sheriff's Lt. Tommy Hansen, the lead investigator. TIPS: bridgettegearen2008@gmail .com

He passed what he thought was a yellow truck. Then he heard Hammond scream again. "When she screamed at me out the window," he said, "I put it in reverse and started chasing him. " Shafer chased the truck about a mile, he said, racing south on Clinton's 2nd Street, then turning west on Culvert Drive. But his car's transmission failed, Shafer said, and the pickup - maybe a 1969 or 1970 Ford - sped away. The truck may have had a decal of a water scene on the back window. Hammond has not been seen since. Police found her car in the parking lot that night, said Clinton Detective Damon Parsons.
