Missing Person Cathy Jo McCoy
No motive has been given and police will only say that McCoy died from trauma to the head.
Cathy Jo McCoy was in a traffic accident in 1998, that left her severely injured. Her mother was taking care of her and then in 2003, Social Security was alerted that her mother, Mary Louis Bowles was cashing her checks. That is when they realized that Cathy Jo was no where to be found. The police were suspicious, but without a body the investigation was hindered. Then last month, Cathy Jo’s remains were found in a ditch in Hix Mountain in West Virginia. Now that the police had a body, they charged her mother with her murder, who they say they suspected all along. We will have to wait for the trial to find out it Cathy Jo’s mother is an opportunist or a murderer.
