On May 23, 1955, 8-year old Jeannie Singleton disappeared on her way home from Woodard School. A victim of scarlet fever, Jeannie walked with a limp; a result of the fact one leg was shorter than the other. On Jun. 1, 1955, children playing hide-and-seek in a pine preserve in Doster, discovered the badly decomposed body of a young girl. Detectives quickly determined that the beaten body was in fact little Jeannie Singleton. While investigating this macabre discovery, it was soon determined that Jeannie’s body was disposed of at the site of her brutal murder.
