Analyce disappeared from Smyrna, Tennessee on April 23, 2006. In January 2008, her skeletal remains were found at Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The bones were identified as Analyce's in March 2008. Authorities stated there were obvious signs of trauma and they believe the child was the victim of a homicide. Analyce's murder is under investigation.
Thoughts? There's not much to go on and as of at least 2017 as far as my research took me, this case s still unsolved.
If you have any information concerning this case, please contact the Smyrna, Tennessee Police Department at (615) 459-6644:
I know fair or unfair, everyone is quick to blame the parents in cases like this, but as we saw in the Elizabeth Smart case, stranger abductions from home do happen. I feel terrible for Analyce's mother in this case who found the front door unlocked at 4 am. I hope she doesn't feel guilty because unfortunately when someone is determined to do harm, they will stop at nothing to do so.
The articles also seem to be consistent with an abduction as well, front door unlocked, sister saw someone dressed as Santa Claus as well.
It is possible that they have a non-parental relative that is a secret creep or it was a neighbor who was a secret creep as the person apparently came into the house in disguise.
