Anonymous letter about missing woman leads police to ‘unusual dig site’

A Michigan sheriff held up an anonymous letter with detailed instructions to find Kelly McWhirter’s body, but she wasn’t there. 

Instead, law enforcement in Genesee County, Michigan, found an “unusual dig site” in a neighboring county with disturbed dirt, Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson said during a Wednesday press conference.

“There’s a spot that looks so real life that a person could have, or at least started to have, dug there, but there was no body,” said Swanson as he held up the letter and pointed to it. “This is why we need to talk to this person.

“You were so specific in your directions that you obviously felt burdened enough to send it. Maybe you’ve had a bad interaction with law enforcement. Maybe you’re scared. I assure you, you have nothing to be scared about.”

Anyone with information about the case or the letter is urged to call 911 or 810-257-3422.
