A cold case in Morgan County heats up.
Investigators found a body that appears to be Joanna Anderson near Rocky Mount on Tuesday.
The 54-year-old Anderson had been missing since May 2016.
Deputies say 44-year-old Darrell Willis admitted this week to helping Anderson’s boyfriend, Steven Swon, hide the body after Swon killed Anderson in a domestic dispute.
Willis then reportedly led deputies to an oil drum that had a dismembered woman’s body inside.
Swon died in July from cancer. Willis is currently in jail on charges of abandoning a corpse and tampering with evidence.
