The 2005 death of Willie Louise Kellum in Camp Hill, Alabama is investigated. The day of February 21, 2005 started off as fairly uneventful for Louise. She ran some errands, including to the local grocery store, which was the last place she was seen alive.
Later that evening, her grandson who was living with her at the time, found her lying unconscious in his room and called 911. When police arrived, they found her with a cord wrapped around her neck and bruises covering her body.
Markis Heard, a repeat sex offender, was indicted for the rape and capital murder of Louise, after DNA evidence was found on her underwear. He pleaded guilty; his plea agreement has him serving 10 years in prison and 30 years on parole.
