A missing woman's body is believed to have been found in Chesapeake, two years and one day after her disappearance. The whole time Kathy Goble's family had been holding out hope that she was somewhere safe.
"There was hope that she had just gone away on her own until today we had that hope," family spokesperson Billy Herrald says.
Herrald says the outcome is not what the family had been hoping for but it does give them some answers into her disappearance. Goble, remembered for her smile, outgoing personality and love of people, seemed to have just vanished on April 24, 2010 and since then there have been very few clues about where she could be. She was last seen leaving work at Kelley's Mens Shop in Charleston and then later her car was discovered along I-64 in Putnam County.
Her co-workers and friends searched for her and held vigils, but now news, a man who they all knew, allegedly killed her and kept the secret all this time. Police say her remains were found at Charles March's home, he allegedly admitted to strangling her, dismembering her body and then burying her. March had worked with Goble for years at Kelley's.
"I talked to this guy about a week ago in Kelley's and I would have never expected him to do something like this," Herrald says.
Police say they questioned March several times but had no evidence to link him to Goble's disappearance and therefore no reason or right to search his property in Chesapeake.
Kanawha County Sheriff Mike Rutherford says his officers never gave up on the search for Goble. Police also say there's no indication that someone helped March in the crime but they say the investigation is ongoing and one thing they're trying to figure out is how her car ended up in Putnam County.
