On Oct. 7, 2016, after a reliable tip came into Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office in Bakersville, the body of Joshua Emmanuel Buchanan was discovered in a shallow grave on private property. Joshua had been missing since Sept. 22, 2016; his sister filed a missing person report on Oct. 1, 2016. Joshua's sister, Breanna Toney, is responsible for funeral expenses and purchasing a headstone. There is also a T-shirt fundraiser to help with the cost. Orders and money for T-shirts must be turned in by Sept. 13 and T-shirts will be delivered by Oct. 11.

T-shirts are $20.
