As a parent, I now know how my parents felt when I wound answer phone calls and not tell them my whereabouts.

When someone you love and care about seemingly disappears and you can't reach them, your mind starts to wonder.

Especially in this age of technology where people are meeting up for so many things.

People arrange meet ups for dating.

Online meetups also stem from just getting to know new people in a new city.


Although great things can come from meeting people online, you have to be cautious. There are really some people in this world who want to do bad things to others.

It seems like that's what happened in this situation where an Alabama woman's body was found burned in an abandoned car.

According to CNN, 31 year old Jermiera Ivory Fowler's body was found after authorities received a call about a burning body.
