Missing 48-year-old Emily Griffith Anderson Found Deceased

Emily Griffith Anderson has been missing since December 29. She was found Saturday and her death is being treated as a homicide.

The body of a Sawmills woman missing since Dec. 29 was found Saturday by officers with the Duncan, S.C., Police Department.

Police are treating the death of 48-year-old Emily Griffith Anderson as a homicide.

Anderson was last seen around 10 a.m. in Lenoir. She was driving a white 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, the same vehicle her body was found in.

Police discovered her vehicle just off Interstate 85 near Spartanburg, SC. It was not until the vehicle was brought back to Caldwell County for processing that they discovered Emily Griffith Anderson’s body.

Caldwell County detectives were dispatched to South Carolina to gather evidence and conduct interviews.

Anderson’s body was located in a locked tool box in the bed of the truck after the truck was transported back to Caldwell County for processing.

The detectives and special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are continuing the investigation.

UPDATE: Missing Woman Found Dead; Investigators Focus On Suspect(s)

Murder mystery. An anonymous phone call to a Waffle House ends the search for a missing woman. Monday night, there’s a new search for whoever killed the woman and then stuffed her body in a box.

Investigators found Anderson’s pick-up truck after a manager at the Waffle House said he took a phone call from someone who told him to call police about the vehicle parked nearby. The man on the other end refused to give his name or talk about anything else.

Sheriff Gary Clark/Caldwell County Sheriff’s Dept.: “Stunned, this agency is stunned, the investigators are stunned. It’s a very cold and callus crime and we’re very angry about it”.

UPDATE II: Missing woman had been shot

Caldwell County woman found dead Saturday in South Carolina had been shot several times, a preliminary autopsy showed.

But Caldwell County Sheriff Gary Clark said the investigation into the death of Emily Anderson hasn’t focused on a single person or motive. “The investigation at this point is wide open,” Clark said. “We’re stunned. This agency is stunned. The investigators are stunned. This was a very cold and callous crime, and we’re very angry about it.”

She had planned to go from the quarry to the Sam’s Club store in Hickory, but investigators have no evidence that she ever arrived.

Police in Duncan, which is near Spartanburg, found her truck in the parking lot of a restaurant off exit 63 on Interstate 85. Police became suspicious because there was no activity around the truck, and one of the tires was flat. They checked the license plate number and notified the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office, Clark said.

    Police have arrested the husband of a Caldwell County woman whose body was found earlier this month stuffed in a truck.
    Caldwell County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jerry Anderson around 12:30 a.m. today and charged him with the murder of his wife, Emily Anderson, 49.
    Jerry Anderson is being held in Caldwell County Jail without bond.
    Emily Anderson’s body was found Jan. 7 near Duncan, S.C. She had multiple gunshot wounds, police said. Her body was discovered about 100 miles from the dairy farm home she shared with her husband in the town of Sawmills.
    Emily Anderson was reported missing Dec. 29. She was last seen that day in Lenoir.
    The discovery of her body nine days later set off fear in the Sawmills community, with residents worried about their safety.
    The Observer reported last week that Emily Anderson had been considering a divorce from her husband.
    Caldwell County Sheriff’s Detective Brian Bennett filed an affidavit Jan. 9, in which he reported talking with a close friend of Emily Anderson’s, Patricia Thorpe, of Barnegat, N.J.
    The affidavit indicated Anderson told Thorpe she was considering ending her 4 1/2-year marriage to Jerry Anderson. The affidavit also reported that Emily Anderson had spoken with a Hickory attorney, Rachael LeClair.
    When contacted by The Observer and asked to comment on the divorce reports, Jerry Anderson said, {quot}I don’t have time for this conversation,{quot} and hung up.
    Earlier this week, The Observer also reported that a search warrant for Jerry Anderson’s farm had been issued.
    Emily Anderson’s truck, a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, was found in the parking lot of a Waffle House restaurant in upstate South Carolina. After authorities transported the truck back to Caldwell County, they found the victim’s body in the tool compartment.
