A mother of two disappeared after leaving a Fourth of July party was found dead in her car, which was recently discovered in Georgia. Natalie Jones, 27, of Corinth, had driven to Jackson’s Gap, Alabama to attend a 4th of July party with her friends.
Jones left the party at about 10:30 p.m., sending a text to a friend who was at the party saying, “I made it. Thanks,” County Sheriff's Office Lt. Danny Boswell said at the time. Authorities launched a massive search for Jones and the bright pink car she was driving.
On Tuesday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced on Twitter that Jones’ 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier had been found in Heard County. Authorities found a body inside the car, which has not yet been identified, pending an autopsy, the GBI said in the tweet.
According to DailyMail
A mom missing since leaving a Fourth of July party has been found dead in her hot-pink Chevy in rural Georgia.
Natalie Jones, 27, a mother-of-two from Corinth, Georgia, vanished without a trace after attending the party in Jacksons' Gap, Alabama.
On Tuesday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced that Jones' 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier containing a human body had been located in a wooded area in Heard County. Her family said the body is Jones.
Officials reported that the body has not been positively identified pending an autopsy, but Jones' mother said she was told by law enforcement that her daughter had been found dead.
'I lost it, I really did,' Elaine Gordon told WSB-TV, describing the moment she learned the tragic news. 'I started screaming. I started hitting the mattress. I put a hole in the wall.'
Heard County Sheriff Ross Henry told The Newnan Times-Herald physical evidence suggests that Jones' car had been in the woods near Roosterville from the time of the woman's disappearance, contrary to false rumors circulating online, claiming the Chevy was not there on Monday.
