The body of Meredith Emerson, the Georgia hiker who went missing on New Year's Day, has been found. Her probably killer, Gary Michael Hilton, led authorities to Emerson's body, which Hilton had dumped in Georgia's Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area, about 30 miles south of where Meredith had been hiking with her doggie, Ella (pictured here). Police suspect that Hilton might be responsible for another murder — the double homicide of John and Irene Bryant — that occurred a few months ago in North Carolina's Mount Pisgah National Forest. Meredith Emerson's godmother and her family's spokesperson, Peggy Bailey, tells CNN: "We are glad she's found. This brings some sort of closure for us." [CNN]
