Jackson County, Florida, is one of those out-of-the-way places most people don’t think about when they think about the Sunshine State. It’s a mostly rural county that sits up against the Alabama state line, south of Dothan, and the only reason most people ever go there is to pass through on the way to Panama City Beach. Now it’s in the news:

Jackson County is reeling from tragedy after investigators found the body of a 19-year-old pregnant woman who had been missing for a week and arrested a man in connection with her murder.
Anastasia Gilley, who was four months pregnant, had last been seen at her home on May 3, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Her disappearance touched off “around the clock” efforts to find her by JCSO and the Houston County Sheriff’s Office in South Alabama.
“The investigation quickly led to the arrest of an Alabama man, who has been in custody since earlier this week,” JCSO said in a news release. “The suspect has been uncooperative throughout this entire investigation.”
Marquis Devan McCloud, 33, was arrested on a charge of capital murder during a first-degree kidnapping, authorities said. More charges are pending.
Following leads from interviews and other “investigative techniques,” law enforcement searched various locations in Jackson and Houston counties. Early Wednesday, investigators found a deceased victim near Headland, Alabama, a small town outside Dothan, Alabama.
“Investigators believe this to be the body of Anastasia Gilley, pending an autopsy,” JCSO said in the news release.

The New York Post refers to McCloud as Gilley’s “boyfriend,” but police haven’t actually said anything about such a relationship:

Cops said McCloud — whose violent rap sheet includes a rape conviction — had already been in custody for several days but was uncooperative during the frantic search for his alleged victim.
The Alabama man was being held on a probation violation before investigators hit him with the new raps after finding Gilley’s body. . . .
In addition to the rape cases, McCloud’s criminal history includes terror threats, robbery, battery and violation of sex offender laws. . . .
Detectives zeroed in on McCloud after discovering that he had corresponded with Gilley prior to her disappearance.

Don’t expect to see this case on CNN, nor should you expect that feminists — who love to denounce “violence against women” — will mention this case as an example, for some reason.
