Woman's body found in south Ga. woods

  • Follow Latest News

WOODBINE, Ga. -- The Camden County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a body that a truck driver found Wednesday afternoon in woods beside Exit 14 off Interstate 95 at Woodbine, Deputy William Terrell said.

The driver stopped his rig in the on-ramp for the northbound lanes just before 2:30 p.m. to have a flat tire repaired, Terrell said.

“In walking around, they saw what they thought was a body in the woods, and sure enough it was,” Terrell said.

The body was that of a white female. A Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent was at the scene processing the crime scene, he said. The body will be sent today to a GBI crime lab, most likely in Macon, for an autopsy to determine the cause of death and to try to identify the woman, Terrell said.

There was nothing with the woman’s body that officers could use to quickly identify her, he said.

Terrell could not say how long the body had been in the woods but said that the cooler weather of fall slows decomposition.

I hope it's not the mother

I hope it's not the mother missing since she left court TV in Florida and her husband got custody of her children. But if they found the woman's body off 95 in South Georgia, not far from Florida, can't help but worry it might be her. Whoever she is, may she rest in peace....there doesn't seem to be much peace on earth right now....praying for whomever she left behind.
