Georgia hiker's murder

Hiker Meredith Emerson / Gary Michael Hilton

In early 2008, the nation was captivated by the disappearance and gruesome discovery of the body of Meredith Emerson of Buford. Soon after, suspect Gary Michael Hilton was captured and confessed to the kidnapping and murder of the 24-year-old University of Georgia graduate. Hilton, now serving a life sentence for Emerson's death, has since been indicted for the murder of Cheryl Hodges Dunlap in Florida and is a suspect in several other murders in the Southeast.
