This week’s FF case is Timothy Lee Willoughby, a 24-year-old who disappeared with his girlfriend, Mary Ann Higginbotham, from the tiny town of Clayton in central Indiana on June 6, 1978. A year later, Mary Ann’s body was found stuffed inside a drum in Mooresville, Indiana, twelve miles from Clayton. She’d been shot in the head. She was 22 years old.
At first the police thought Timothy had killed her, but now they think both of them met with foul play. Two men were arrested for the murders but were later released.
