Anniversary Of Teenager's Mysterious Murder

It's been 2 years since a 15 year old Leverett's Chapel girl was found dead in the woods near her home. Today, investigators are no closer to finding her killer.

In October of 2001, Jessica Sadler went for a walk on county road 158. Three days later, her nude body was found in a pile of trash in the woods.

A fellow student, Curtis Howard, who was 18 years old at the time, was considered a suspect. However he was only charged with aggravated sexual assault. He was acquitted of those charges earlier this year.
