    According to Wilson and Chattooga County Sheriff John Everett, a farmer in Lyerly, a small community near the Alabama border in the far southern corner of Chattooga County, was walking through a wooded area on the eastern side of the Chattooga River Monday afternoon searching for usable driftwood and potential walking canes when he found a human jawbone and immediately called authorities.

    Everett assembled a search team with the help of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and later that afternoon, more human remains were found in the same general area. As the light was falling, investigators halted the search for the night, and came back the next day with an larger entourage of GBI officials. More remains were found Tuesday, and all the evidence was surrendered to the GBI. Wednesday morning, forensic anthropologists announced that the remains were positively identified as those of Theresa Parker through a dental record match.
