    Human remains found in Norcross


    by Staff reportsDecember 10, 2009 | 08:09 PM
    GWINNETT COUNTY — Gwinnett County police have confirmed human remains were found Dec. 6 by a resident walking his dog off Forest Vale Drive at about 12:30 p.m.

    What’s more, investigators believe the unidentified victim, who died months ago, was murdered.

    Police said the resident was playing with his dog in the woods when it discovered what appeared to be skeletal remains.

    The scene was subsequently examined and processed by county crime scene investigators, detectives and personnel from the Medical Examiner’s Office. The skeletal remains were then collected and transported to the Gwinnett County Police Department Morgue, where an autopsy was performed that indicated the remains were human.

    Looks like the murderer buried her with more than just the clothes she was wearing.

    Maybe she was a runaway with a bag packed?

    what race/ethnicity do they think she is? do they have a height/weight estimate? I really hope there's more to go on than clothing.

    Viola looks like a good possibility, since she was heading to Atlanta with a suitcase. She seems a bit older than their initial estimate, but not that far off.
