The last time anyone heard from Marjorie Knuckles, 78, was January 30, so a family friend decided to check on Marjorie and her 95-year-old mother on Sunday February 3. During her visit, she did notice Marjorie was not home, but it appears Marjorie's mother was okay. She went to take the trash out, and found Marjorie's body inside a rolling trash can inside a small storage building behind Marjorie's home. At the time, Marjorie's car was also missing, as was her 44-year-old adopted son, Brandon Scott Knuckles, who lived with them. He was having some troubles in his life, and his mother wanted to help him out.
Brandon Scott Knuckles was found on Monday morning, with Marjorie's stolen car, at a local motel. He was taken into custody and charged with auto theft. He is also considered a person of interest in Marjorie's murder. The autopsy found she had been beaten and strangled before being thrown in the trash can. She was well liked and will be missed in her community.
