    Details of Disappearance

    Harmon was last seen in Monroe County, Mississippi on June 29, 1985. He left his paycheck behind at home and has never been heard from again. Prior to his disappearance, Harmon had been awarded a settlement from a lawsuit, and he'd been threatened as a result.

    James Rodney Mills confessed disposing of Harmon's body in 2009. A photo of Mills is posted below this case summary. He is presently incarcerated in Tennessee; in 2001, he pleaded guilty to the 1994 murder of his cousin's husband. Mills's cousin, Brenda Holliman, had paid him and an accomplice $25,000 each to shoot her husband. In exchange for his guilty plea, he was spared the death penalty and sentenced to life in prison instead. Holliman was sentenced to life in prison also.

    Mills stated Harmon was killed and he buried his body in someone else's freshly dug grave at Willis Cemetery, just 300 yards from Mills's home. Police sent him photos of the cemetery, and he pointed out the spot where he said Harmon's body was buried. When the grave was opened up, however, it contained just one body. Mills has never been charged in Harmon's disappearance, but he maintains his story is true.

    Harmon's case remains unsolved.
