2 Children Found Buried 2 Years Apart in a Yard. Their Father, a Walmart Santa, Has Been Arrested

Police in southeast Georgia are trying to determine how two children could go missing for up to two years without anyone reporting it to the police – following the grisly discovery of the bodies of a 14-year-old brother and sister in their father’s backyard.

The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office was responding to a welfare check for Mary Crocker on Dec. 19 when investigators discovered her body and the body of her brother, Elwyn Crocker at the home in Guyton, Georgia.

Police said although Mary had not been seen in weeks and her brother Elwyn Jr. had not been seen since November 2016. Neither child had been reported missing to authorities.
