A Mercer County mother is still waiting for justice more than a year since the disappearance of her son whose remains were eventually found in the cellar of a Lincoln County barn.
Pat Devine, who is recovering from a broken hip, is also mending a broken heart since she last saw her son, Clint Disken, on March 3, 2012.
"It doesn't seem like a whole year," said Devine. "It's really hard knowing I'm not ever going to see him again."
The barn Disken's remains were found in was close to the trailer he was staying at with his roommate, Thomas Hager Jr., who was named a suspect in his homicide.
Hager was also charged with two counts of murder in the May 2012 shooting deaths of Ted Sparks, 54, and Mark Snyder, 21 in Danville.
"His body was thrown like trash in a building with trash on top of him," Devine said. "I wondered if he suffered and if he knew if he was being killed. I just wondered what went on. I'd like to know."
While her son's murder suspect is confined to a jail cell, Devine continues to be confined to her thoughts on if and when justice for her son will prevail.
Hager is expected to plead guilty in last May's deadly double shooting, according to the Danville Advocate Messenger.
