Investigators in Cleveland County have identified several persons of interest in the 2008 death of Cory Bodily.

All his mother said she wants is a little bit of closure and to find the people who killed her son and then tried to hide the body.

The last time Cory was seen alive was when picking up his paycheck at the Taco Bell off W. Lindsay Street.

“I miss him, I miss him dearly," said Sharleen Resor, who is still heartbroken over her son's disturbing disappearance and death.

Cory Bodily went missing in July of 2008.

Then five months later, on Christmas day, a dog found a human skull in rural Cleveland County.

“And I told my husband, I said that's really sad,” recalled Resor. “Somebody's loved one has been found.”

Little did she know that someone was her son.

His remains were found buried under some leaves and brush outside a field in Noble.

“He was my little boy,” cried Resor. “He was my baby, my only son.”

Resor said she keeps a scrapbook of everything associated with her son's unsolved case.

It also includes this special poem she wrote herself.

Son oh my son you were my only one

But now you are gone

And for your presence I do long

Your death has left a hole in me that no one else will ever see

In her poem, Resor wrote how she longs to see Cory again, but most of all she wants to see justice and to finally face her son's killer.

Until that day Cory,

keep looking down at me

And know that all the tears I shed

Are in your memory

Now new detectives have gone back to the Taco Bell where Cory worked, as well as to other nearby businesses, to put up flyers. They said they are hoping someone might remember seeing something that will help them crack this case, and arrest the person or persons responsible.

“This new set of detectives has just brought me a lot of hope,” said Resor. “I truly feel in my heart that we are on the right path, that there's going to be closure. I don't know when, but I truly believe it's going to happen."

On the fliers it stated anyone who has credible, pertinent information to this case may be eligible for a cash reward, so if you know anything you are urged to call the Crimestoppers tip line at (405) 701-8872.
