FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Fulton police are searching for clues and information surrounding the death of Deborah Evans-Bell.
She disappeared in February 2016.
At the time, police said she had traveled to Memphis, Tennessee, for a doctor's visit but hadn't been seen since returning home.
Investigators at the time said she had used a transportation service to make the trip.
Fulton Police Chief Mitch Nabors said the case remained open until her body was found in January of this year.
Nabors said a man hired to make repairs to the plumbing at a home on East Hill Street found the skeletal remains on January 19. He said she had been buried in a crawl space beneath the home.
Evans-Bell lived there with her husband when she disappeared. However, the home has a new owner.
The police chief said investigators have questioned quite a few people of interest. He added the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is helping with the case.
Currently, investigators are waiting to learn her official cause and manner of death. The case is being investigated as a homicide.
