LONG CO., GA (WTOC) -

As Kenneth Lumpkin begins serving a life sentence without parole for the murder and kidnapping of Lori Arrowood, some now wonder once again if he did in fact play a role in the disappearance of another Long County woman. 

Deborah Gail Moody has been missing since December 2007 when she disappeared from her home without a trace. She was declared deceased this past year, but her body has never been found. 

Moody's family still believes she's alive. On Monday, Lumpkin pleaded gulity to killing Arrowood. Lumpkin, Arrowood and Moody knew each other. 

The connections had raised questions before, but WTOC asked Long County District Attorney Tom Durden about a possible connection and whether they're taking another look at Lumpkin as a suspect in Moody's case. 

"There is always that possibility. At this point - not. There has to be some new evidence. There will have to be some other evidence turn up," Durden said.
