New Development In Theresa Parker Case Comments 0 September 29, 2010 5:44 PM John Madewell
NewsChannel 9 has learned the G-B-I has completed its work on Theresa Parker's skeletal remains. Last Monday, a farmer discovered her jawbone on the banks of the Chattooga River.
Officers searched about a 25 square foot area around the jawbone and found more than 100 bones. Investigators sent those remains to the G-B-I crime lab in Decatur.
GBI Public Information Officer John Bankhead confirmed specialists completed the examination today. The next step is coordinating with Walker County coroner Dewayne Wilson and returning the remains to her family.
On September 3rd, 2009 a jury convicted her estranged husband and former LaFayette police Sam Parker of murder. The jury was selected out of Bartow County because of all the publicity surrounding this case. That jury returned a guilty verdict without a body at the time of trial. Parker's serving a life sentence in a state prison in Reidsville, Georgia.
