A funeral service is planned in Hammond Saturday for a woman who disappeared more than a decade ago. Police reports say Francine Carlson was 38 years old and living in Whiting/Robertsdale when she was reported missing in June of 1999. In October 2011, her remains were discovered in Hammond after a bone was found by a dog at the site of a former bait and tackle shop that was being torn down in the 17-hundred block of Indianapolis Boulevard. Her death was ruled a homicide in March of this year.  Hammond Police Chief Brian Miller has said they spoke to more than 30 people regarding the case, and identified a then 50 year old man as a suspect, who passed away a few years ago. Chief Miller says he believes the suspect was a friend of the victim, and was probably the last person seen with her.  The memorial service will be held 4 to 6 p.m. at Burns Kish Funeral Home in Hammond, Saturday, November 16.
