Janet Renee Field has been missing since July 2.

The mystery of Fluvanna County’s missing woman has been baffling authorities since Janet Renee Field failed to return to her Scottsville area home on July 2.
But just as puzzling is another question – who is Janet Renee Field?
She didn’t work; she didn’t belong to any church or clubs that authorities know of; she didn’t have any children to pull her out into the community.
“There are not a lot of known associates,” said Lt. David R. Wells, who is investigating her disappearance.
Yet Field, 49, lived in Fluvanna for “quite some time,” Wells said.  She and her husband, Lewis Field, bought property off Hickory Hill Drive in Scottsville in 1997.
In an attempt to find her, Fluvanna authorities sought search warrants.  Authorities conducted a search of Field’s car and executed at least one more search warrant in connection with her disappearance.  But a circuit court judge sealed the warrants July 11 at the request of Fluvanna County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jeff Haislip.

Brandon Chad BruceBut cops caution cause of death still unknown
Brandon Chad Bruce may have been murdered – and the car he was found in may have been deliberately set on fire, according to a search warrant filed in Fluvanna County Circuit Court.
Firefighters discovered Bruce’s body in a blazing car around 1 a.m. on July 3. But how he got there remains a mystery.
The day after Bruce’s death Fluvanna investigators cited his possible murder as grounds for a search warrant. They also referenced the “illegal burning or destroying of personal property” – or arson – of the 1995 Lexus in which Bruce was found.
The warrant gave authorities permission to search for all “mobile phone and text transmissions sent and received, including tower locations, as well as all text message content” for Bruce’s cell phone on the days leading up to his death.
With access to his cell phone transmissions on July 2 and July 3, authorities hope to locate “possible witnesses/suspects and…help track Bruce’s movements” in the hours before his death, according to an affidavit to the warrant.
