Whitney Bennett's Body Found

Sadly, this is what the Daily Times Reports:

MANOKIN – Maryland State Police recovered the body of a Delaware woman who has been missing for four months and have arrested two Wicomico County men as their investigation continues into what caused the death of the woman.

An examination today at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore identified the body as Whitney L. Bennett, 23, of the 36000-block of Susan Beach Road, Delmar, Delaware. Although the body was identified, the medical examiner said the cause and manner of Bennett’s death remains undetermined. Additional forensic examination and tests will be conducted.

State Police investigators last night arrested two men in connection with the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Bennett.

They are identified as Steven L. Akers, 36, and Claude H. Hill, 49, both of the 400-block of South Camden Ave., Fruitland, Md. Both Akers and Hill are charged with accessory after the fact and obstruction of justice. They are being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center on $100,000 bond. They are believed to have known Bennett and others with whom she associated.

Bennett was reported missing by her mother to the Delaware State Police on December 9, 2010. Delaware State Police investigators determined Bennett had last been seen alive in Wicomico County on December 4, 2010. The Wicomico County Bureau of Investigation (WCBI) assumed the investigation into Bennett’s disappearance and began an intense search for her which has continued through this weekend.

During this past weekend, WCBI investigators received information indicating a possible location of a buried body that could be Bennett. Investigators obtained a search warrant for an unoccupied property of several acres located in the 29000-block of Pond Run Drive in Manokin, in Somerset County. WCBI and Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators served the search warrant yesterday morning. With the assistance of state police crime scene technicians, investigators recovered the body from where it was buried in a wooded area on the rural property.

The state’s attorneys from both Wicomico and Somerset counties worked with investigators throughout the weekend. No one has been charged with the death of Bennett and it has not officially been ruled a homicide.

The investigation is active and ongoing. Investigators are working to develop information on when and how Bennett died and if anyone was responsible for her death. Anyone with information is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Persons with information may also call Wicomico County Crimes Solvers at 410-548-1776 and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

Kristen Shockley Is STILL MISSING

All posts for today will go below this one. There is NO update on this situation. When there is you can believe we will post it. Kristen is still out there........

This young woman went missing on April 6, 2010. That was the last day her mother saw her.
Now, exactly TWO weeks later, it doesn't seem that anyone is truly doing anything actively about this.

Maybe the question should be asked "how long do you wait before law enforcement makes up it's mind to do something?" The mother that is looking for her daughter did the right thing by contacting the local police department in the CITY THAT HER DAUGHTER RESIDES.

Theresa tells me today that she thinks her daughter may very well be in the Baltimore/Washington area. Kristen's cell phone is no longer working. Either it has been turned off or tossed. I agree with her.

She has spoken to a detective but things still continue to move a little too much on the "slow" side. There just seems to be no rush even after two weeks of missing and two LONG, ANXIOUS weeks of being missed. Sadly, Kristen's mom told me today she just wants her daughter to come home and she wants her home to her just like she was when she left. Now, any of you being a parent knows exactly where she is coming from.

At what point does a missing adult go from "just gone off to party" and rise to the "better look for this person because the outcome might not be so great" with the law enforcement?

Kristen has a young son at home. He is the love of her life. Kristen was waiting for her mother to come get her in Baltimore but when she got there Kristen was gone. I call that odd. If Kristen called to come home once why has she not called again? Baltimore is a big place if you're from little ol' Pocomoke. There are churches and police stations, fire houses, homeless shelters all around that busy area of Baltimore where she could go for assistance and make another call home!

I don't think she's able to. And I hope for the sake of this family and this little infant son of Kristen's someone gets off their duff and starts doing something real quick.
Please continue to pray for this family. We will try to post any information we get from the family and keep you updated.

HELP! MISSING Kristen Shockely


Pocomoke resident Teresa Shockley needs help finding her missing daughter Kristen Shockley missing since April 6th.

This is a missing person case not unlike the Christine Sheddy case.

I have spoken to the mother and in her view of things she is not getting the cooperation and attention of the police agencies that a missing person case deserves so lets get her side of the story out in the ‘public eye’ and lets find this missing young lady.

Kirsten is a Worwic college student that would ride the transit bus everyday to get to Worwic. Kristen’s mother Teresa, would take Kristen to Wal*mart every Monday thru Thursday to catch the transit bus to Worwic, this was a daily routine that began in November of this year.

April 6th 2010 Kristen’s mother Teresa dropped Kristen off at the transit bus stop as usual and Kristen got on the bus to travel to Worwic just like any other day but on the day April 6th 2010 Kristen did not come home. We do not know if Kristen made it to the Worwic stop or got off the bus somewhere in-between Pocomoke and Worwic college but we do know Kristen did not go to class and did not come home, Kristen’s mother has not seen her daughter since that day, April 6th 2010.

When Kristen did not return home the mother (Teresa) tried to contact Kristen with no luck at that point Teresa contacted the Pocomoke Police, Kristen’s mother Teresa Shockely says she got the run-around and the police acted as though they felt that Kristen was just off having fun and has simply run away. When Kristen’s mother reported Kristen missing she was told that Kristen had to be missing for 24 hours before she would be considered a missing person. 24 hours pass and Kristen’s mother Teresa makes the official missing persons report, the Pocomoke city police still will not right up the missing persons report and tells Kristen’s mother that Kristen is “just off playing and partying” and brushed it off as not being serious. After Teresa presses the issue the Pocomoke city police finally file a missing persons report after Kristen had been missing for 3 days. According to Kristen’s mother Teresa she was not even referred to a detective, the report was taken by a patrol officer.

Kristen has a boyfriend that has been abusing her, he has beat Kristen a number of times to the point that Kristen had to visit the ER. Kristen’s mother says that charges were pressed but each time Kristen dropped the charges.

Near the date that Kristen went missing her boyfriend beat her again, sending Kristen to the ER for the 4th time, Kristen pressed charges, this time Kristen did not drop the charges and the boyfriend was arrested. Kristen’s boyfriend made bail after a few days in incarceration, 3 days later Kristen went missing.

Kristen’s mother received an anonymous phone call Thursday the 8th saying that they saw Kristen walking the streets in Salisbury. Then on the 10th Kristen’s mother received a call from the Baltimore police telling Kristen’s mother that they had Kristen in custody but they could not hold her because Kristen is an adult. At that time Kristen did speak to her mother Teresa and Teresa says Kristen begged to come home and that she does not know how she got to Baltimore, her purse and personal belongings are not with her and she does not know where or how her belongings disappeared.

At the police station Kristen told the Baltimoe police that she was going to go get a pack of cigarettes, there was a store almost in sight of the police station. The store and the police station are near the intersection of Windsor Mill Rd and Woodlawn Dr. Kristen has not been seen since.

Kristen’s mother Teresa and Kristen’s brother took off to Baltimore to search the area and covered the ground from April 10th thru April 12th with no luck.

Teresa has the tracking feature on Kristen’s cell phone and it’s showing up in Salisbury and is being used at a very unusually high rate, much more than Kristen would use it. Kristen’s mother has reported the whereabouts of the cell phone but Salisbury police tell Teresa that they cannot help as long as the phone is moving. The signal from the phone seams to be mainly in the Booth street area of Salisbury.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Kristen Shockely please contact the Pocomoke city police @ (410) 957-1600 or email me at this blog. We need to bring Kristen home.

Dental Records Might Give Police A Clue

SNOW HILL -- Dental records could reveal the identity of a body unearthed on a Snow Hill property as soon as Thursday.

Until then, Worcester County State's Attorney Joel Todd won't confirm rumors that the skeletal remains found on the grounds of a Snow Hill inn are those of missing Delaware woman Christine Sheddy.

"It would be inappropriate to comment on the identification," he said. "I don't know who this is. At this point we're referring to the person as Jane Doe. The Maryland Medical Examiner will have to make that determination."

Sheddy was last seen Nov. 13, 2007, at a residence outside Pocomoke City. The single mother of three was 27 years old when she vanished without a trace, police said. Local groups searched for her with no results, and her story had been featured on the TV show "America's Most Wanted."

The remains were found by investigators Feb. 19 buried on the property of the River House Inn, a bed and breakfast adjacent to a municipal parking lot and the Pocomoke River in downtown Snow Hill. Todd said the discovery came as a total surprise to the couple that owns the inn.

The remains were taken to the state Medical Examiner's Office in Baltimore, where the woman's body will be checked against dental records of known missing persons. Sheddy's dental records will be included among those because she's known to police as a reported missing person.

Members of the Maryland State Police, Worcester County Sheriff's Office, Worcester County Bureau of Investigation and the Worcester State's Attorney's Office were led to the site Feb. 19 as part of a larger investigation, Todd said.

Police said in a statement that the remains were found after several hours of searching. Only a pair of shoes and blue jeans were found with the body. Todd said no clear cause of death was apparent, nor was it clear how long the body had been there.

Where is Christine Sheddy?

It's been much too quiet for months now on the case of the missing mother Christine Sheddy.

A Delaware resident visiting friends that lived on the outskirts of Pocomoke city that vanished without a trace over two years ago.

All of a sudden the uproar has died as fast as it reared. Even with shouldering the attacks the PPE absorbed.

What's the hold-up on the DNA of the remains that were found on a local beach that authorities assumed to be of Christine?

A womans remains (bones) were found recently by hunters at a boat ramp near "Dover" on Port Mahon Road, this area is where Christine Sheddy lived. The remains (bones) have been there so long that even the race of the womans remains are undetectable and DNA samples had to be lab tested. The results are estimated to be returned in 90 days so why is it taking so long for DNA results of the skull found on Assateague Island.

Although I'm literally hated for exposing the raw truth of the matter and sticking-up for the PCVFD I still to this day continue to search diligently for answers in this case of the missing mother.

This case will not go away. The good people of Pocomoke still want answers. They volunteered their precious time and monies on more than one occasion only to be chastised by the great hope in the end.

Local LE has worked overtime again and again with no answers. The suspects have moved about endlessly causing turmoil and chaos for others in their path only to return to Pocomoke.

We were told by the new hope "they were being interrogated". We were told "they were cooperating" and that "leads" and "witness's" were "coming forward". What did we get? A long series of embellishments and plagiarism compiled into chapters of who shot John (BS) for one reason and one reason only.

This "new hope", granted, has a silver tongue and even fooled me for a short period. So I don't place blame on those that hate me for exposing the "new hope". I had my hopes up as well and was blinded for a minute, but not much longer.

Where is the "new hope" now? What poor unsuspecting family is she chasing at present? What community is the "new hope" trying to segregate? Who is the "new hope" trying to sue? Which LE agency is being accused of a conspiracy? Yes the "new hope" still has a few of the lesser minded twisted around her little finger, but I bet that Christine's family has had second thoughts by now.

Through all the flack, attacks, and down right mean spirited nonsense we are still here and looking. We need no pat on the back. We need no recognition. We just want Christine found. Period! It's been too long.

Although we must face the facts that many have gone missing and have never been found, sad as it may be it's a reality.

Where is the hero that rode in on the white horse now?

We are still here!!
