COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) — A woman whose body was discovered in a river near Atlanta has been identified as a person with autism who was reported missing last month, miles away.
The Newton County Sheriff’s Office said Friday on its Facebook page that she was 23-year-old Shanequa Quanee Sullivan of Atlanta. The agency said it’s not clear how she died, and an investigation is ongoing.
Her body was found March 4 by a fisherman in the Yellow River.
Local news media report Sullivan had autism, and was last seen four weeks earlier at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, where she had worked for the past year.
