Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe and Chief Deputy Larry Bowman continue their efforts to bring home the remains of a woman found in February 1982 after no family members could be found.
The remains of Betty Ruth Davis were found more than 28 years ago near Cedars of Lebanon State Park. She was believed to be about 39 years old. Her remains were sent to the University of Tennessee’s Anthropology Department in Knoxville to be identified, and that is where they have remained ever since, in a box in the department which is located underneath the stands at Neyland Stadium.
