Mother pleads for answers surrounding daughter's death

The mother of a woman whose remains were found earlier this year is pleading for someone to come forward with information in the case. 

Beth Wiley Gordon was featured on Crime Stoppers last month. Now her mother is in Chattanooga hoping someone will help give her family closure. 

"Beth was an animal lover. She was a very sweet girl, she was very wanted," Vicki Wiley said, "Beth was smart and had her Dad's sense of humor, which was keen." 

Wiley smiles as she described her daughter, Beth Gordon. 

Wiley was supposed to be celebrating her daughter's 42nd birthday on Thursday, but instead she's meeting investigators to figure out how the mother of five died. 

"I wanted to speak some for her children, for me as her mother, to say that Beth was loved. And that her children, what her children have said is, My mom was sweet and kind and loving and she had nothing, she was non-confrontational and they can't understand why this happened to her," she said. 

Beth's remains were found in some woods behind McDonald's in Tiftonia. Investigators believe she had been there for two months. 

"If you saw her in that area, or maybe if you saw her in a homeless camp, or at a friends or family members house, call and provide us that information," Chattanooga Police Sgt. Victor Miller said. "Because we’re trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together to find out what caused her death."

"Just the fact that she was found in woods is something, Beth would have never been there. She did not put herself there and somebody knows something," Wiley said. 

The reward for information about what happened to Beth has now been increased, you can now get $2,000 by calling the Crime Stoppers line at 698-33-33. You do not have to leave your name.
