Blanche Packer was buried in Storms Cemetery, a family cemetery across from Sandy Grove Church. Located between Bladenboro and Elizabethtown, NC off Hwy 242. Follow an unpaved road off SR 1116 immediately North or the intersection of SR 114 and SR 1116. The unpaved road ends at the cemetery. Blanche was born Sept. 20, 1881 and murdered Sept. 3, 1904. The two men found guilty of her murder, Brown and Sellers, were executed by public hanging on the courthouse lawn in Bladen County. Blanche was the daughter of Frank and Martha Russ. She had a younger brother named Willie. Willie found Blanche on the morning of the murder.
