The body of a young Alabama woman reported missing more than a month ago was recovered Monday in a well.

The discovery of 20-year-old Marka “Willoe” Watkins’ body in Tuscaloosa, Ala., also resulted in the arrests of two men on murder charges, according to reports.

Watkins was reported missing June 15 by her grandmother, according to the Birmingham News, which also reported that she was once involved in high school pageants

Her alleged killers, Kendal Tyler Battles, 29, and Joseph Brandon Nevels, 20, were also charged with abuse of a corpse, Fox 6 Birmingham reported.

“We believe Watkins was at one of the suspect’s residences in the 20000 block of Tanya Drive in Tuscaloosa County when she was assaulted and killed,” Tuscaloosa County Violent Crimes Unit assistant commander Capt. Kip Hart said, according to the News. “The suspects then drove her to the address on Will Walker Lane to dispose of the body.”

Investigators believed at the time of the disappearance that she had been murdered, according to the paper.

A tip led to the discovery, the News reported.

If the month old corpse was found in a well, does that mean there could be some poor suckers drinking and bathing and cooking in her corpse juice?

From the link...

Authorities said her mother was bludgeoned to death four years ago by three friends who wanted access to her boyfriend’s food stamps, the paper reported. The friends face capital murder charges.
Is this related I wonder? Or is it just a family who surrounds themselves with bad people? Seems unlikely that it’s pure coincidence and that the family is full of saints.

Edit: link says the woman hung out with shady people. Still wonder if the mother’s murder is related though.

A hand dug country well is at least 4 ft across, enough room for a man to get down in the hole to dig it out. You could realistically get a cow down in there. A lot of times old wells are only covered by a sheet of plywood and some rocks , so not difficult to get to get it open. they should be filled in but nobody goes to that much trouble.

A 4th person has been arrested.

Tuscaloosa charged 30-year-old Monic Battles, wife of one of the three original suspects in the case.
