MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Murfreesboro detectives are investigating a link between a recently acquired map and a missing woman.

Marcie Smith disappeared without a trace one year ago. 

Investigators have a map that could lead to the location of her body.

Attorney John Norton represents Palmer Smith whose wife disappeared in Murfreesboro. Police have reviewed surveillance video from Wal-Mart. The video shows a man pulling a bicycle from Marcie Smith's vehicle in the parking lot. The video was captured on the day Smith disappeared.

Someone sent a map from Memphis to Palmer on Saturday, which was the first anniversary of his wife's disappearance.

The map pointed to a road, which is located on marshy land near the Mississippi River. The area is about one hour north of where the Smiths lived in Covington, Tenn.

Detectives believe the map may show the location of her body. They plan to search the area in Lauderdale County in West Tennessee.

It remains unclear who sent the map.

"Somebody who has some knowledge about the disappearance of and death of Marcelline Smith," Norton said.

The envelope and The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has the map and an envelope, which will both be tested.

TBI agents declined comment, but Murfreesboro police consider the map an important clue.

Norton said his client didn't have anything to do with his wife's disappearance.

Norton said Marcie Smith didn't have any life insurance. Her husband has access to all of the family's assets so he'd have nothing to gain by revealing the location of a body if he killed her and stashed the body.
