Remains found in Loudon County identified as Knoxville woman
LOUDON (WATE) - The human remains found January 19 in a wooded area in Loudon County have been identified as Pamela K. Knight, of Knoxville.
Knight was 35 when she disappeared from her home on Bruhin Road in Fountain City in October 2005.
She went with her husband, Paul, in a 1994 Jeep Cherokee around 4:00 a.m. the day of her disappearance and was never seen again, although she told one of her three sons goodbye and that she would see him later.
Pamela Knight never showed up for work at
Hillcrest Healthcare that day and never picked her kids up from
school. The Jeep was later found abandoned in Jacksonville,
Knight's mother said shortly after the disappearance she thought Paul Knight had killed her daughter.
The couple met in an Internet chat room while he was in prison. Paul Knight served time in Brushy Mountain Correctional Complex for aggravated burglary, theft and other charges.
Police interviewed Paul Knight as a suspect in the case several times, but without a body they could never make Pamela Knight's disappearance a murder investigation. It was always a missing person case.
Paul Knight is currently serving prison time in Louisiana.
Pamela Knight's remains were identified through dental records.
The remains, which were wrapped in a comforter, were found in a wooded area off Eblen Road in Loudon County near the Roane County line by two men looking for scrap metal.
The Loudon County Sheriff's Office and Knoxville Police Department are working together to follow leads in this case.
Anyone with information about this case should call Lt. Patrick Upton with the Loudon County Sheriff's Office at 865-986-4823.
