This story is SO sad but yet so common. Stacey English lived only a few blocks from me. My thoughts and condolences goes out to her family and love ones at this difficult time!
The body of a woman found Monday in Southeast Atlanta has been positively identified as the remains of Stacey Nicole English. The 36-year-old had been missing since late December.
English was identified through the use of dental records, officials said. An autopsy conducted Tuesday by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office did not reveal a cause of death.
“Further investigation and testing will need to be performed, which will probably take several weeks to complete,” said chief medical examiner Randy Hanzlick.
Atlanta police announced Monday that English’s decomposing body was found under a tree in a heavily wooded area near the Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood. The location is roughly one mile from the spot where police found English’s car abandoned, but still running, on Dec. 27.
