Funeral for Pike County woman

Folks packed Rogers Funeral Home in Belfry to pay their respects to a Pike County woman.

33-year-old Brandi Fields was recently missing for six days before officials found her body at the bottom of a hill on an old strip mine.

Fields was a mother and daughter and a friend to many.

Fields' body was found in McCarr five miles from her mother's home after days of searching.

"She always is back in two or three hours, and she didn't come back," said Fields' mother Lana Blankenship.

"I knew something was up because she's always home the next morning," said Fields' 12-year-old son Tyler Fields.

Fields' mother reported her missing after checking with jails and hospitals in the local area.

"I remember running down the road where I seen her last and screaming. I knew she was there. Just come home to me," said Blankenship.

More than 100 folks piled into Rogers Funeral Home to support Fields' family. From the looks of the crowd, she meant a lot to the community.

"You just don't know how much your family means and your neighbors mean. They pulled together to come help us with her," said Blankenship.

Although there are currently no suspects in the death of Fields, the family believes someone did this to her.

"I don't see how they could do that to a 12-year-old boy. I just want justice for my mom," said Tyler.

The family urges anyone who knows anything about Fields' death to come forward.

"She was the perfect mom that anyone could ever have. The greatest mom in the world. She meant everything to me," said Tyler.

Following the service, folks attended Fields' burial ceremony at the Alley Cemetery in Ransom.
