Break in 1980s Middle Georgia cold case solves part of long-mysterious vanishing

The body of a man shot in the head and left on a remote dirt road between Forsyth and Gray 33 years ago has been identified as a missing Florida man.

The Telegraph has learned that a DNA analysis of the man’s remains, completed earlier this year, matched that of William Maholland, who was reported missing from Fort Lauderdale in June 1984.

Maholland, who was 28, is thought to have been killed in May of that year and dumped in Jones County, nearly 600 miles north of his hometown.

A fisherman found the body in the Oconee National Forest, a few miles southeast of Ga. 18 and U.S. 23. The fisherman had seen buzzards circling near Jarrell Plantation and Caney Creek Road.

Investigators suspected that the dead man — whose body was shirtless — was from out of town because of his Bermuda shorts and a belt with swordfish on it.

A new associate professor and criminologist, Michelle Jeanis, Ph.D., has partnered with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s department for research that could improve social media’s use in missing person cases.

“Right now, they’re calling it the new milk carton campaign,” Jeanis said.

Jeanis explained her work is intended to find the social media tactics that work best for nonprofit organizations and law enforcement.

“One of my main goals is getting this information to the practitioners,” she said. “I think about that with all the research that I do. Why am I doing this and how can it benefit the people doing the real work?”

Jeanis was invited to speak at a training seminar by Lafayette Sheriff Public Information Officer John Mowell. Afterward, she was asked to conduct further research with them.

Her body was found in Macon almost 40 years ago. But who she is remains a mystery

Editor’s note: This story is part of an occasional series about unidentified human remains found in Middle Georgia. If you have information about the unidentified woman described here, please call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.

Though the body was lying in the front yard of a house, it was more than a month before anyone noticed it.

One Thursday afternoon nearly 40 years ago, a woman who lived on Riverside Drive in Macon was outside hanging laundry on a clothesline when something caught her eye.

There in a sparsely wooded area about 15 feet from the road, 47-year-old Estoria Bowman saw what she later described as a “yellowish shape.”

“I got close enough to tell it was a human, and then I backed off and waited for my husband,” Bowman told a Telegraph reporter at the time. “I didn’t want to find out what it was by myself.”

The body had been

DNA and genealogy could help identify a woman killed in 1977

EVERETT — Forty years ago the search for her name began with the discovery of her death.

Berry pickers came across the young woman’s body Aug. 14, 1977, in a wooded area in south Everett.

She was wearing a pastel, striped tank top, cut-off jean shorts and size seven blue Mr. Sneekers tennis shoes. A Timex watch with a yellow face was on her left wrist, the leather band fastened at the second-to-last notch. In the pockets of her shorts were 17 cents, a partial pack of Marlboros and an empty plastic bag.

She was brunette, tan and tall, maybe 5-feet, 10-inches. A forensic anthropologist later estimated she was between 15 and 21, likely 16 to 19.

The medical examiner dug seven bullets out of her head. Her killer would later tell detectives he wrapped a bungee cord around her neck when she turned down his advances. She urinated in the front seat of
