“Bodine” or “Bodean” is possibly the name of a woman who was found deceased in Atlanta, Georgia on the 13th of October 2002. At the time of writing this article, her NamUs profile has been removed which suggests that she may have been identified but there is no official confirmation that she has been identified. She was killed by serial killer Gerald Patrick Lewis.
“Bodine”‘s partial remains were found in woodland near Charlie Brown Airport. The bones that were found included the skull with no mandible, a pelvic bone, a scapula, the right femur, vertebrae, the left clavicle, the sternum, arm bones and hand bones.
Several years after being arrested, Gerald confessed to her murder. He claimed that she was possibly named either “Bodine” or “Bodean”, and that she would frequently go to the Alamo Hotel located on Metropolitan Parkway (formerly known as Stewart Avenue). He met her in either 1993 or 1994.
Gerald said that before the woman got into the car she said that she had to run into her motel room really quickly, and said something about making sure her son was okay.
After the pair had engaged in sexual intercourse, Gerald drove to a dirt pit which was just off a runway from the airport. It was here that he pinned her against a tree, raped her at knifepoint and then stabbed her 30-40 times. Gerald later said: “She didn’t even cry or anything. It was kind of strange.”
Gerald passed away on the 25th of July 2009, and in total, he confessed to seven murders in Georgia, Alabama, and Massachusetts.
“Bodine” is described as being a female between the ages of 25 and 50. Investigators found a silver-coloured ring marked with “Korea” and “925” with her remains.
Hopefully, we will be able to give her name back to her very soon.
