News conference to be held on Gail Palmgren investigation

A news conference will be held Jan. 4 on the investigation of the Gail Palmgren case, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

Sheriff Jim Hammond will hold the conference at 2:30 p.m. and the Times Free Press will provide live online coverage of the news conference from 600 Market St.

Nothing further will be released until the news conference, the sheriff's office said..

Palmgren, 44, disappeared on April 30 after she dropped her two children off at their Signal Mountain home.

Despite several searches in the area, her disappearance was a mystery until early December, when the remains of her body and her Jeep were found of the side of the mountain.

Authorities say her vehicle plunged off the side of East Brow Road on April 30.

Seriously?!? They announce a press conference a week away? Do these rednecks hope they will figure it out by then?

She ran off the road. Hopefully the press conference will reveal the cause.

I guess they cannot all be forensic experts like Bumpkin. After all, Bumpkin has probably seen every episode of CSI on TV so he must be an expert.

Salsa, I actually don't like CSI to much. I prefer Law and Order SVU. I especially like the episode about anchor babies, which is probably why you are still allowed in this country.

I am not so sure she ran off the road. If you notice the jeep as they were bringing it down the mountain there was massive damage to the back of the jeep but very little to the front. If I was to guess I would say she was hit from behind to have that kind of damage. Unless she drove backwards off of the mountain.
