DA: Bones in Falmouth are those of missing woman
FALMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) -- Officials say bones found last week in a Falmouth woods are the remains of Trudie Hall, a Nantucket woman who disappeared nearly two years ago.
The 23-year-old was four months pregnant when she disappeared in July 2010.
Hall’s skeletal remains were discovered in the woods in Falmouth by a man walking his dog. She disappeared when she traveled to Barnstable for a doctor’s appointment in 2010.
Through dental records, pieces of jewelry and other items found with the bones, investigators determined they are the remains of Trudie Hall.
“Though Trudie will never speak again, by finding her, she has told us much. Among other things, she has told us how many times she was shot and with what kind of bullets,” said O’Keefe.
When Hall went missing her mother held out hope that her daughter was alive.
“Just for her to call and say mommy, just one word,” said Vivienne Walker, Hall’s mother, in 2010.
In the summer of 2010, investigators found Hall’s rental car and inside was blood. Officers spent countless hours searching wooded areas, but didn’t focus on the area where her remains were found.
“It was an area that was near areas that had been relatively extensively searched,” said O’Keefe.
Two years ago police questioned and searched the home of Quoizel Wilson. He was never charged.
The district attorney’s office won’t say whether they have a person of interest, but think someone may have assisted the person who is responsible for Hall’s death.
“There may be a possibility that someone knowingly or unknowingly aided the killer of Trudie after the fact,” said O’Keefe.
7News has learned Hall had a complicated married life.
"We have interviewed a number of people all through the course of this, and reinterviewed them. And we will continue to do that," said O'Keefe.
7News has also learned that back in 2009, Hall went to a probate court in Barnstable, and another in Plymouth -- with two different men she had intended to marry.
On April 29, 2009 Hall and Doucet McDowe of Nantucket filed paperwork to get a speedy marriage. Then in November, Hall and another Nantucket man, Ram Rimel, filed in Plymouth.
The DA’s office is asking anyone with information to come forward.
