Photo From Polk Tornado Victim Found Over 129 Miles Away In Cornelia, GA RomeNewswire, WSB TV EXCLUSIVE! Mon, 17 Mar 2008 13:16:47 -0000 Only hours after the devastating tornadoes stampeded through Polk and Floyd County, a remarkable find was made in Cornelia, GA. Denise Caudell was in the driveway of her Cornelia Georgia home around 10pm and spotted what appeared to be a photograph. After picking it up, she and her husband, Wesley, realized this was no ordinary picture. They had seen the coverage on WSB TV about the deaths that had occurred in Floyd and Polk Counties and remembered hearing the name, Bonnie Turner (the female killed in Polk County). Upon inspection of the photo, they realized the name Bonnie Turner, Aragon, GA was printed on the life raft and the man standing on the boat is indeed Mike Turner, Bonnie's husband, who is still listed in critical condition in Floyd Medical Center. Apparently this photo was swept up in the killer tornado and carried over 129 miles away and deposited, without damage, in the driveway of the Caudell's home, which is just West of the South Carolina line. The Turner's home off Live Oak Drive in Aragon, just over the Floyd County line, was completely destroyed in the storm. Bonnie Turner was killed instantly and her husband, Mike, was severely injured. Most of the couples 100 Jack Russel Terriers were also lost or killed. Only 6 have been found alive so far.
