I miss you Oreo.
Apparently the investigators didn't rule the blood loss was an amount to where someone could not survive. But obviously very injured and I believe killed that night. I think the biggest questions are who and where is her body?. Sickos. Sending her Glasses to her Mother is really disturbing. Did L.E. even examine the package?. Handwriting?.

Tupelo’s chief of police is retiring after a long career in law enforcement.

Chief Aguirre says his only regrets are not being able to two missing person cases. The case of Leigh Occhi and Jennifer Jackson Floyd. However, Aguirre says the cases are still open and he is hopeful they will eventually be solved.
