    Unhappy GA - Hannah Truelove, 16, Gainesville, 24 August 2012

    Cops: Body found at Lake Lanier is missing teen

    A body found Friday night on the shore of Lake Lanier was identified Saturday as that of a missing 16-year-old Gainesville High School student, authorities said.
    Authorities said the death of Hannah Truelove is under investigation. They have ruled out drowning.

    "It's still being treated as a suspicious death," said Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks of the Hall County Sheriff's Office said Saturday. He said authorities were interviewing family and canvasing the neighborhood to question others.

    According to Channel 2 Action News, the teen's recent tweets on Twitter.com complained about living at the Lake Lanier Club Apartments and about a stalker

    How sad.

    What a beautiful young lady. This is frightening. Hearing about her final tweets makes it seem like she did have a stalker. R.I. P. Sweet Girl. I am so sorry.

    Why describe her as "at risk" but then refuse to say more?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Authorities say they are investigating the death of a Gainesville teen whose body was found in the woods behind her apartment complex as a homicide.

    PICTURES: Ga. teen found dead

    Sgt. Kiley Sargent with the Hall County Sheriff's Department said police are investigating the death as a homicide, due to discoveries that 16-year-old Hannah received injuries that "were indicative that she died from a violent death."

    In a Monday afternoon press conference, Major Woodrow Tripp said 16-year-old Hannah Truelove was "violently killed."

    Detectives with the Hall County Sheriff's office spent all weekend fielding phone calls and e-mails from people with potential tips about the death of 16-year-old Hannah Truelove. And according to detectives, several "persons of interest" have been identified.

    Some witnesses said they say Truelove on Thursday night around 7:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. in the parking lot near the woods where she was found.
    A man visiting his grandchildren at the complex found Truelove's body as he was walking along a trail in the woods. He said he has been questioned and released by the police, and was told not to release any information about what he saw.

    GBI must have pulled her tweets, the one about the stalker and others are not visible, prior to August 19th. Initially they were. It seems not even her closest friends knew she had a stalker or was afraid of someone?

    So senseless ... Prayers for her family~

    Quickly glanced at her tweets... wonder if there is any chance she might have been pregnant and if that may have been a motive?

    ETA: She also appears to have been upset over a bad relationship that ended.

    "Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks of the Hall County Sheriff's Office said they do not believe the general public has any cause for alarm, as it does not appear Truelove was the victim of a stranger."

    http://www.11alive.com/rss/article/2...-still-unknown

    If she was upset over a bad relationship that ended, it leads me to believe that perhaps this ex-boyfriend was the 'stalker', which would also tie in with both the violence of her death (potentially a crime of passion), and LE's belief that she knew her attacker.

    I also believe that she may not have thought the 'stalker' was as serious as she thought, especially (if this is the same person that killed her) as the police have said it does not appear she was forced into the woods, and may have gone there of her own free will.

    Rest in peace, Hannah. Such a tragedy.

    As far as cause of death, Tripp said it's something they're keeping investigatively close.

    "I know as strange as this may sound, there are literally people, and this has been throughout the course of modern American history, that actually confess to crimes they haven't committed. One of the ways that helps us is when they're confessing and they're giving us a manner of death and in fact, it's not what occurred, it certainly helps us to weed those out," Tripp said.

    He said investigators have received plenty of tips and information in the Truelove murder. While he said that's a good thing, the challenge is that much of that information ends up being irrelevant to the investigation. That's where the element of time comes in.

    "We can't discount it. We have to investigate it, explore it and determine if in fact it's valid or not. There's a lot that we wade through. It's kind of like looking for that needle in the haystack."

    Just wanted to clarify that I obviously meant to say "I also believe the stalker was more serious than she thought".

    Always best to proof read before posting...

    I really hope the police have a lot more to go on than the information they have released. Not enough of the cases I've followed closely here have been solved, for once it would be nice to know that someone is actually put behind bars for their crime. It makes me so angry when I know people are just wandering around freely after committing crimes such as the ones we investigate here.

    It's good to hear that LE are receiving lots of tips on the tip line, I hope the majority are actually legitimate tips that are helping them move closer to an arrest.
