Nauvoo is a very small town located in extreme northern Walker County near Carbon Hill. Only one mile square in geographic size, part of its population of slightly over 200 spills over into Winston County. Nauvoo is in the heart of what might be called Alabama’s Bermuda Triangle, where residents go missing with regularity and are never seen alive again. Authorities believe most of of the missing have been murdered and their bodies dumped down one of the many abandoned mines in the Walker-Winston area.
Such a person is Andrew Earl Setliff. From the official Walker County press release:
