    COVINGTON, Ga. — Investigators were still searching Wednesday for body parts of a slain woman whose dismembered body was discovered after a dog took a severed human foot back to his yard.

    "We are still looking for the rest of the remains," said Newton County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Bill Watterson

    The foot was found in a heavily wooded, sparsely populated portion of Newton County off of Georgia Highway 212. Teams of investigators later Tuesday found half of the body of a woman.

    Watterson said there have been no missing person reports fitting the woman's description.

    Fighting Dogs Lead to Human Remains

    http://www.wltx.com/news/story.aspx?storyid=55097

    Newton County, GA (WXIA) - Dogs that were fighting over an object in the darkness led a woman to the discovery of body parts in an area along Georgia Highway 212 in Newton County early Tuesday morning.
    The woman called police and, after daybreak, the authorities sent out a search team and discovered even more human remains behind a vacant home. The remains had not decomposed, leading investigators to believe they were recently scattered in the area.
    The homeowner said she came home from work and found her dogs fighting in her back yard over what turned out to be a human foot.
    The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was also on the scene with Newton County sheriff's deputies. The body parts are being analyzed at the GBI crime lab.

    Body parts of woman found in Newton


    http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/printedition/2007/10/31/bodyparts1031.html

    A Newton County woman, returning home from work early Tuesday morning, walked outside to check on the commotion her dogs were creating and found one of them with a severed foot in its mouth, authorities said.
    The 3 a.m. discovery set off a daylong hunt in the heavily wooded, sparsely populated portion of the county, south of Covington. By evening, authorities found other remains —- about half of the body of a woman —- scattered over a 100-yard area behind a vacant house off Ga. 212 and Island Shoals Road, said Coroner Bob Wheeler.

    Authorities will return to the area today.
    The remains appear to be those of a petite white or Hispanic woman, said sheriff's Lt. Bill Watterson. The woman is believed to have been killed a day earlier, authorities said.
    The county has not had a person matching that description reported missing in the area.

    Remains Identified, Man Charged

    The Newton County Sheriff's Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigations have identified the remains of a person found in Newton County on October 30, and are charging a man with murder in the case.

    According to a news release issued by the GBI Sunday evening, the remains have been identified as those of Leslyan Williams of Decatur. The remains were reportedly identified using fingerprints. The body’s head and torso are still missing.

    Williams boyfriend, Franklin Benson, 47, was arrested Sunday and will be charged with murder, the release said. He is being held in the Newton County Jail.

    A woman in Newton County reported the discovery of the remains after her dog brought her a human foot.

    The investigation into this matter is continuing and anyone with information on either Williams or Benson is asked to call the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-597-TIPS (8477).

    The severed foot that a Newton County resident found her dogs fighting over last month belonged to a mis of the victim's boyfriend. Leslyan Williams, 49, was reported missing by out-of-state family members about the time human body parts were found in a heavily wooded and sparsely populated portion of Newton County south of Covington.
