Case History: On March 29, 2008, a fisherman stumbled onto a box spring on Tyler Island Road, near Isleton. As he was going to the bathroom, he noticed bones sticking out from under the box spring and called authorities. Investigators believe it had been nearly four years between the day the victim was dumped in the secluded spot and the afternoon in March when the fisherman discovered the remains. Authorities began cutting away the weeds between the body and a nearby levee. No cause of death has been determined, but investigators believe the woman was placed at the location during the summer of 2004, based on the height of willow trees that grew under the box spring.
