xx Kayla Wills - GA
« Thread started on: Mar 2nd, 2005, 05:38am »

Authorities dug up the 13th hole of a Braselton golf course on Tuesday looking for the body of a Winterville woman missing since July 2002.

Robert Eugene Hill, 47, of Pendergrass is charged with concealing a death and abandoning a body in the disappearance of 19-year-old Kayla Marie Wills, Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said Tuesday. Hill has not been charged with killing Wills.

Investigators have not yet recovered Wills' body and do not know the cause of her death. Hill, however, pointed authorities to the location of Wills' body - at a golf course in Traditions of Braselton - sparking Tuesday's search.

"Supposedly, the man did not kill her," said Oglethorpe County Coroner James Mathews. "He woke up and she was dead. ... He got scared he would be accused of killing her, so he buried her."

Additional charges could be filed against Hill, Smith said. However, the sheriff would not say what those charges might be.

"We can't speculate," Smith said. "The body is going to have to be located and sent to the Crime Lab. ... We've got a general idea of where she's probably located at."

Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Oglethorpe County Sheriff's Office authorities spent much of Tuesday digging up the 13th hole of the golf course at Traditions of Braselton. Though authorities did not find a body Tuesday, they were able to narrow down the search area, using cadaver dogs and with the help of a University of Georgia archeologist, Mathews said.

Hill, who remains in jail without opportunity for bond, went to the GBI's Athens office Tuesday after he learned authorities were investigating the woman's disappearance.

At the time Wills disappeared, Hill worked with heavy equipment, including bulldozers, at the golf course, which was under construction, Mathews said. The condition of Wills' body may determine how long it takes investigators to find a cause of death.

"If there's any kind of blunt trauma, how are you going to distinguish that between a hand or a bulldozer," Mathews said.

Wills and Hill were living together in the Winterville area of Oglethorpe County at the time of her disappearance, Smith said.

"I assume they were boyfriend and girlfriend," Smith said. "They lived together."

Wills' family reported her missing in July 2002, but when the case remained unsolved, it was closed. After Smith took office in January, he asked that it be reopened.

Search for body continues
Golf course
By Todd DeFeo



BRASELTON - Investigators looking for a Winterville woman missing since July 2002 are focusing their search on a 240-square-foot area on the 13th hole of a Braselton golf course, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday.

For a second straight day, Oglethorpe County and GBI authorities dug up the golf course at Traditions of Braselton hoping to find the body of Kayla Marie Wills. She was 19 when she disappeared from her Oglethorpe County residence almost three years ago.

"The search is expected to continue until the investigative lead is exhausted," GBI spokeswoman Vicki Metz-Vickery said.

On Monday, authorities arrested 47-year-old Robert Eugene Hill of Pendergrass and charged him with one count of concealing a death and one count of abandonment of a body. Hill went to the GBI's Athens office Monday to give authorities a statement after he learned of the investigation, though authorities would not say how Hill learned of the renewed probe into Wills' disappearance.

After his arrest, Hill, who worked with heavy equipment at the golf course as it was under construction, tipped off investigators to a possible location of Wills' body, authorities previously said.

In their search, investigators used ground-penetrating radar from the University of Georgia to map the area before they started excavating. The GBI's forensic anthropologist and cadaver dogs also helped search the area, which is closed off to the media and public and remains under 24-hour surveillance.

"I'm pretty confident we'll locate something there," Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said Wednesday. "We're going to continue to dig until we're satisfied."

No time frame has been set for how long the search at the golf course will continue. Smith said investigators will stay there "however long it takes. We're pretty much confident that (Wills) is there."

Oglethorpe County Chief Magistrate Judge Gail Smith on Wednesday denied bond for Hill. He remains in the Wilkes County Jail in Washington.

"The court felt like he was a significant flight risk," Smith said Wednesday. The ongoing investigation played into Smith's decision to deny bond for Hill, she said.

At the time of her disappearance, Wills and Hill were living together in the Winterville-area in Oglethorpe County, Smith previously said. Initially, "reports were that Kayla left her Oglethorpe County home on her own accord," the GBI said in a statement.

Wills' family reported her missing in July 2002, but when the case remained unsolved, it was closed. The case was reopened earlier this year after Smith was sworn in as Sheriff in January.

Wills graduated from Madison County High School in 2001. School officials on Wednesday declined to release any information about her.

"We are extremely sad about this," said Al McCannon, an associate superintendent with the Madison County School System.

In a quote printed with Wills' picture in her senior yearbook, she thanked McCannon and two others "who showed me I can do anything if I set my mind to it."

Officials at Traditions of Braselton and the community's corporate office declined to comment Wednesday on the investigation or about the community.

Lots in Traditions of Braselton were sold starting in April 2003, and a grand opening was scheduled for June 2003, according to a June 2003 press release posted on the community's Web page.

The 1,100-acre community features 330 acres of greenspace and an 18-hole golf course, according to the release. The half-acre homesites in the community range in price from a high $30,000 to more than $150,000, according to the release.

Traditions of Braselton site of investigation for missing woman
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Department were at Traditions of Braselton Tuesday examining the soil beneath the golf community for the body of a missing woman.
Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith told reporters that investigators are searching for the body of 23-year-old Kayla Marie Wills, Winterville. She was reported missing in July 2002 and a new lead in the case developed in January 2005 that lead officers to believe foul play was suspected, he said.
Monday, Robert Eugene Hill, 47, was charged with concealing a death, Smith said. The Pendergrass man is being held in an undisclosed jail, he added.
Investigators said they haven’t found a body, but are “pursuing investigative leads,” said Fred Stephens of the GBI. Stephens and Smith declined to comment on what lead investigators to the Traditions of Braselton site or what equipment they are using to search for Wills’ body.
Wills and Hill resided with one another, Smith said.
Traditions of Braselton is a 1,550-lot golf community located off Ga. Hwy. 124 that has been under construction with new residences.

Search goes on for missing teen's body
By NIKKI YOUNG
The Times


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation continued digging Thursday night for the body of a 19-year-old Winterville woman they think was buried on a Braselton golf course three years ago.

Oglethorpe County Sheriff's Capt. Jimmy Fulcher said a forensic anthropologist from the bureau is assisting agents and sheriff's deputies in the search for Kayla Marie Wills on the 13th hole at Traditions of Braselton.

Robert Eugene Hill, 47, of Pendergrass told investigators Tuesday that he buried Wills in a bag or sleeping bag in July 2002, the Associated Press reported.

In a release issued Thursday, Fulcher said the investigation is focused on an area approximately 60 feet long and 40 feet wide.

Ground-penetrating radar from the University of Georgia was brought in Wednesday to map this area before excavation began.

The golf course is handling the digging with a trackhoe, a backhoe on tracks, Fulcher said.

Agents could not speculate how long the search will continue.

"They will search until, what they say, the investigative lead is exhausted," said bureau spokeswoman Vicki Metz-Vickery.

Hill and Wills were living together in Winterville, east of Athens in Oglethorpe County, when Hill awoke one morning to find Wills dead, authorities said. Afraid of being blamed for the death, Hill told police he hid the body at Traditions, five miles east of Braselton, where he was a heavy equipment operator.

Hill went to the GBI's Athens office after he heard authorities had reopened the case of Wills' disappearance in January when Oglethorpe Sheriff Mike Smith took office.

"We reopened a number of old cases that (were) left dormant," Fulcher said.

Because Oglethorpe County doesn't have a jail, Hill remains in the Wilkes County Jail in Washington without bond, a jail spokesman said, on charges of concealing a death and abandoning a body.

Friend recalls missing teenager
Golf course search
By Todd DeFeo


Amanda Martin speaks fondly when she talks about her friend, Kayla Marie Wills

"In any picture we could find of her, she was smiling," Martin said. "She was the type of person that made you feel good about yourself."

Wills was 19 years old when she disappeared from her Winterville residence in July 2002. At first, investigators thought she left Oglethorpe County on her own accord.

But this year, authorities reopened their investigation into Wills' disappearance.

And this week, authorities from Oglethorpe County and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation turned their attention to the 13th hole of a Braselton golf course.

"She always had a warmth about her that was hard to find in other people, and her laugh was bright as the stars," Martin said. "When you were around Kayla you couldn't help but smile. She was a very loving and caring person."

The two met when Martin was in middle school. Martin, a junior at Madison County High School, remains close friends with Wills' family.

"She has missed family gatherings, holidays, her sister getting married, her niece growing up, her friends and what is going on in her hometown," Martin said. "Not only did she miss out on her family, but she has missed out on her own life."

Wills was living with her boyfriend - Robert Eugene Hill, now 47 years old and of Pendergrass - when she disappeared, authorities said. Hill has been charged with one count of concealing a death and one count of abandonment of a body in the case.

Hill remains in jail without bond. Additional charges could be levied against Hill, though none have been filed as of Friday.

"That's something we're going to have to decide once the body is found and it's sent to the crime lab," Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said Friday.

From the little - and at times conflicting - information released by authorities, it appears Hill, who learned of the renewed investigation into Wills' disappearance, has been somewhat helpful to investigators.

Hill, who worked with heavy equipment at the Traditions of Braselton golf course as it was under construction, talked with the GBI on Monday at the agency's Athens office.

Hill told authorities he did not kill her but woke up one morning and found her dead, Oglethorpe County Coroner James Mathews said this week. At least twice this week, Hill showed authorities where he buried Wills' body, Mathews said.

Investigators will continue their search "until we're satisfied," Smith said. "We're pretty confident that (Wills' body is) going to be in that spot where they're digging."

In their search, investigators used ground-penetrating radar from the University of Georgia to map the area before they started excavating.

The GBI's forensic anthropologist also helped search the area, which is closed off to the public and remains under 24-hour surveillance

xx Remains Found at Golf Course
« Reply #6 on: Mar 8th, 2005, 05:12am »

Human remains were found at The Traditions of Braselton golf course in northeast Georgia, authorities told 11Alive News Monday.

The GBI began digging last week hoping to find the body of 22-year-old Kayla Marie Wills, who went missing in July 2002.

Authorities said they could not confirm the human remains are Wills until an autopsy can be conducted.

The recent arrest of Robert Eugene Hill, 47, tipped GBI agents off to the potential find. Hill was Wills’ boyfriend and was living with her at the time of her disappearance.

Her disappearance was initially treated as a missing person’s case.

While investigators are not revealing what led them to the golf course, they did tell 11Alive that leads developed in February led them to believe Wills may be the victim of foul play, which, in turn, resulted in Hill's arrest.

Hill, of Pendergrass, Ga., faces charges of concealing a death and abandonment of a body, and was denied bond during a court appearance.

Hill has told police that he did not kill Wills, but only buried her after she mysteriously died in the home they shared. He apparently told police he buried her using heavy machinery at the golf course where used to work.

GBI could ID golf course remains today
Body may belong to woman missing for 3 years
By MATT WEEKS
The Times


Authorities hope to learn today if remains excavated from a Jackson County golf course are those of a missing Winterville woman.

An examination by a forensic pathologist and forensic anthropologist with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation could determine if the body is of 19-year-old Kayla Marie Wills, who disappeared March 2002, said Vicki Metz-Vickery, a bureau spokeswoman.

"It really just depends on the information that becomes available," she said. "We will do our best."

It also could tell investigators how Wills died, though neither are guarantees, she said.

Investigators discovered the remains Monday after a weeklong search of Traditions of Braselton that unearthed 20,000 cubic yards of soil in a 150-foot by 110-foot area averaging 10 feet in depth, Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mark Smith said Tuesday in a press release.

He could not be reached for further comment.

With the remains now at the bureau's lab, officials have turned control of the scene back to Traditions.

Authorities began investigating the site after Robert Eugene Hill, 47, of Pendergrass, who lived with Wills at the time of her disappearance, told police he buried her body near the 13th fairway at the golf course.

He had worked at the golf course with heavy equipment.

Metz-Vickery said investigators explored the site after receiving a tip, but did not confirm it was from Hill.

"We had a good lead. We were following a lead with reference to that area," she said.

Hill told police he woke up to discover Wills had died and he frantically hid the body, fearing he would be charged with her death.

Hill is being held without bond at Wilkes County jail in Washington and is charged with concealing a death and abandoning a body. He has not been charged in her death.

Metz-Vickery said she did not know what action authorities might take after the examination.

xx Autopsy identifies Ga. golf course remains
« Reply #8 on: Mar 10th, 2005, 04:56am »

DECATUR, Ga. -- Human remains found buried under the fairway of a Georgia golf course were identified Wednesday as those of a woman missing since July 2003, authorities said.

Dental records revealed that the remains, found Monday on the 13th hole, belonged to 19-year-old Kayla Marie Wills.

The woman's former housemate, Robert Eugene Hill, 47, reportedly told authorities that he woke up and found Wills dead and buried her because he was scared he would be accused of killing her.

He has not been charged with her death. Authorities are awaiting a cause of death from Wednesday's autopsy. He is jailed without bond on charges of concealing a death and abandoning a body.

Hill, who worked with bulldozers and other heavy equipment during construction of the golf course, went to authorities March 1 after learning the investigation into Wills' disappearance had been reopened by Sheriff Mike Smith, who took office in January.

xx Pendergrass man had a history of violence
« Reply #9 on: Mar 14th, 2005, 05:38am »

By Todd DeFeo


WINTERVILLE - A 47-year-old Pendergrass man charged in connection with the death of a Winterville woman missing since July 2003 has a criminal history in Clarke County, according to court records.

Meanwhile, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on Friday did not release the results of an autopsy on Kayla Marie Wills. Her body was found Monday, buried beneath the 13th fairway of a Braselton golf course.

"Nothing further is being released about the autopsy pending tests," GBI spokeswoman Vicki Metz-Vickery said Friday in an e-mail statement. She did not say when information might be released.

Robert Eugene Hill of Pendergrass is charged with concealing a death and abandonment of a body in connection with Wills' July 2003 disappearance. Additional charges have not been filed, Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said.

In Clarke County, Hill's record includes several assault arrests.

Hill was charged Jan. 2, 1996, with aggravated assault, according to court records. However, the charge was dropped because of "insufficient evidence to warrant further prosecution," former Clarke County District Attorney Harry N. Gordon wrote in an April 4, 1996, motion to dismiss the charge.

On Feb. 6, 1997, Hill pleaded guilty to misdemeanor simple battery and was sentenced to 12 months of probation, according to Clarke County Superior Court records. A felony charge of influencing a witness was dropped Feb. 17, 1996, court records show.

Hill was convicted June 26, 2001, of two counts of simple battery and acquitted of a single count of family violence battery, according to court records. He was sentenced to 24 months of probation and 10 days in jail, the records show.

In February 2003, Hill's probation was revoked and Clarke County State Court Judge Kent Lawrence sentenced him to 12 days in the county jail.

On Sept. 30, 2003, Hill pleaded guilty to a count of simple battery and prosecutors dropped a second charge of battery, according to court records. He was sentenced to 12 months of probation.

Wills and Hill were living together when she disappeared, authorities said. Hill also has lived in Hull, according to court records. He has a history of methamphetamine use, according to a Feb. 28 Oglethorpe County arrest report.

The investigation into Wills' disappearance eventually was closed, but after Smith took office in January, he reopened the case. And after Hill learned of the renewed investigation, he went to the GBI's Athens office and pointed investigators to the Braselton golf course, authorities previously said.

Hill remains in a Wilkes County jail without opportunity for bond

xx No word yet how woman found at golf course died
« Reply #10 on: Apr 9th, 2005, 11:31pm »


Nearly a month after the remains of a missing woman were found underneath the 13th fairway of a golf course, investigators still don't know what killed her.

Kayla Marie Wills, missing since July 2003, was found March 7 in the golf course at Traditions of Braselton.

Oglethorpe County Coroner James Mathews told the Athens Banner-Herald this week that it could be another month before investigators learn what killed Wills, 19.

But Vicki Metz-Vickery, a GBI spokeswoman who has consulted with investigators on the case, questioned that time frame Wednesday.

Metz-Vickery said that investigators are not ready to speculate on a timeline, nor did they know where the coroner got his information.

Wills' former boyfriend, 47-year-old Robert Eugene Hill, is charged with abandoning a body and concealing a death. He remains in the Wilkes County Jail without opportunity for bond.

Wills, a 2001 graduate of Madison County High School, and Hill were living together in the Oglethorpe County side of Winterville when she disappeared.

Hill told authorities he buried her body at the golf course where he worked after he woke up and found her dead. Hill had worked with bulldozers and other heavy equipment at the golf course, which was under construction at the time.

Traditions is a 1,100-acre golf course community about five miles east of Braselton. Earlier this month, authorities spent a week searching the course using ground-penetrating radar, cadaver dogs and trackhoes.

Hill went to the GBI's Athens office on March 1 after learning that Oglethorpe Sheriff's Office had reopened the search for Wills.

Family holding memorial to honor woman found buried under course
By Todd DeFeo


The family of an Oglethorpe County woman whose body was found buried beneath the 13th fairway of a Braselton golf course is holding a memorial benefit in her honor, a family friend said.

The benefit will start at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Farmer's Market in Comer, said Amanda Martin, a friend of Kayla Wills, a 2001 graduate of Madison County High School, who disappeared from her Oglethorpe County residence in July 2003.

In March, investigators spent about a week digging up the 13th fairway of the Traditions of Braselton golf course, searching for Wills' body. Her former boyfriend - Robert Eugene Hill, 47, of Pendergrass - is charged with concealing a death and abandoning a body.

As a part of the benefit, there will be a yard sale, a cake sale, grilling out and gospel music, Martin said.

Authorities are releasing little new information about the case, saying they are waiting on the results of an autopsy. Wills' body was sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation State Crime Lab in Decatur more than a month ago, but agency spokeswoman Vicki Metz-Vickery on Monday said she did not know when the autopsy results might be completed.

"We're still waiting to hear from the crime lab," Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said Monday. "We'll get the information from the crime lab and then the GBI, the district attorney's office and my office will get together to decide if there will be any additional charges."

Hill's past includes various assault-related charges, including several in Georgia, according to court records.

On Sept. 18, 1974, he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of assault and was sentenced to 12 months probation in McLennan County, Texas, according to the District Attorney's office. Hill had been charged with aggravated assault, according to court records.

Hill was charged Feb. 23, 2001, in Madison County with aggravated assault under the Family Violence Act, according to court records. The charge was dismissed Dec. 5, 2002, according to an order signed by Madison County Magistrate Court Judge Harry F. Rice.

xx Man Sentenced for Burying Woman on Braselton Golf
« Reply #12 on: Aug 18th, 2005, 3:29pm »


LEXINGTON, GA (AP) -- A Pendergrass man has been given the maximum sentence of ten years in prison for burying his girlfriend's body on a golf course in northeast Georgia two years ago.

Forty-year-old Robert Eugene Hill pleaded guilty in June to concealment of a death for burying Kayla Marie Wills without reporting her death in July 2003.

The 19-year-old woman's remains were found in March after Hill showed law enforcement officers where he had buried her on the 13th hole of a Braselton golf course.

Hill was not charged with causing the woman's death, which remains unsolved. Pathologists conducted an autopsy on Wills, but her mother says the results were inconclusive.

Hill worked as a heavy equipment operator at the golf course. He has said he awoke one morning in the Oglethorpe County house the couple shared and found her dead. He made up a story about her running off with someone and kept the truth to himself for nearly two years.

Hill apologized yesterday "for all the hurt that I have caused." He made the statement to Northern Circuit Superior Court Judge Thomas Hodges and nearly a dozen of the young woman's family members who gathered in the courthouse at Lexington for the sentencing.

Hi, this is my beloved sister... I miss her so dearly.. theres not a day that goes by that i dont think of her.. She went to heaven at a very young age.. It upsets me so much that Bobby was only charged with consealment of the body and nothing more.. He deserves alot more for what he did to my sister.. But in the end he will get what he deserves on judgement day... lipsrsealed
