CHATTANOOGA -- Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman whose body was found in a creek in Monroe County on Wednesday night.
At the request of 10th District Attorney General Steve Crump, TBI Special Agents, in a joint investigation with the Monroe County Sheriff's Department, responded to a report of a woman's body found in a creek off Tellico Lake near Sloan Road. It is unknown how long the body had been there.
Agents have been unable to determine the identity of the woman and hope someone may be able to identify her by some of her physical features. The victim is believed to be a white female, possibly in her 40s. She is believed to be about 5 feet 6, with medium to dark hair. She does not have any natural teeth. The victim has multiple ear piercings, and has a healed-over eyebrow and bellybutton piercing. She has a tattoo of a small flower on her right shoulder blade and another of three Asian markings on her left leg between the ankle and the calf. Additionally, she has a scar on her abdomen.
Anyone who can provide information as to the identity of the woman found in the creek near Vonore Wednesday night is encouraged to call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
