FFfAW-The Field

Christina Osgood was murdered one year ago on this exact day and we have been looking for her body ever since. How did we know we had a murder since her body hadn't been found?

Taylor Windsworth wrote a letter to the local police stating that he had murdered Christina because she wouldn't date him. He killed himself after he wrote the letter and didn't say where he had placed her body.

Today our worst fears were confirmed, we finally found her body in a field off of Highway 110. Her body will now come home for eternal rest.


Thank you Joy Pixley for our prompt photo this week!

  1. That’s really awful. Just because she wouldn’t date him? At least he had remorse enough to leave a confession. At least for her family, they knew she was dead and she didn’t just disappear them never even knowing what became of her. Bad situation all around. Nice write PJ.

  2. Such a tragic story and unfortunately this type of thing has happened in real life. It is so heartbreaking, and her family …even though they knew she was dead, had to live with the question of how she died and what had he done with her body. Nice write, Joy. 🙂

    • You’re so right, Jessie. The parents would have a lot of unanswered questions. Also, this very thing is very realistic. Thank you so much for reading and for your comment. Merry Christmas!

  3. It was interesting to read this story due to the way of you wrote it. Not knowing anything for sure must tear at the very soul of families.

  4. Wow it’s fascinating what emotions and thoughts a picture can evoke. Quite a powerful story PJ, you said so very much in so few words. You have a real knack for that, you’re a great storyteller, you really draw the reader in. 🙂

I would love to read your thoughts...
