Meredith Emerson's Recovery

The Associated Press article from this afternoon that appears in the Gainesville (GA) Times is headlined "DA: Suspect made plea deal in exchange for location of missing hiker's body; Emerson died from blow to head three days after her disappearance." And that's about the gist of it. Apparently, suspect Hilton got the state to agree not to seek the death penalty in return for him revealing where Meredith Emerson's body was deposited.

This article also goes into possible connections between Hilton and the incidents in North Carolina (the death of Irene Bryant and the disappearance of her husband John Bryant) and in Florida (where the body of Cheryl Hodges Dunlap was discovered on 19 December).

AP writer Errin Haines has articles on this story appearing in the Guardian Unlimited under the headline "Bond Denied for Suspect in Hiker Case" (7 January 2008); and the Asheville Citizen-Times titled "Missing hiker's body found in woods" (7 January 2008).
