Funeral service planned for Kelli Bordeaux

Posted May 21, 2014

— A funeral service has been planned for Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux, the missing Fort Bragg soldier whose remains were found last week in some Fayetteville woods, two years after her disappearance.

Her sister, Olivia Cox, said Wednesday that the service is set for 1 p.m. May 31 at Cornerstone Family Church in St. Cloud, Fla. – Bordeaux's hometown.

The 23-year-old Bordeaux disappeared April 14, 2012, after she was last seen at a defunct Fayetteville bar called Froggy Bottoms. Her remains were discovered about 3 miles from the bar in what Fayetteville police described a heavily wooded area near the Interstate 95 corridor.

Nicholas Michael Holbert, 27, is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the case.

Arrest warrants allege that he and Bordeaux were at Froggy Bottoms together and got into a fight in the parking lot.

Police say he knocked Bordeaux unconscious and carried her back to his home where he hit her several more times in her head until she died.

Investigators say information he provided them led them to find her remains.
