Finally, Crawford County investigators found the 23 years old Anitra Gunn dead a week after she went missing on Valentine’s Day.
According to Peach County Sheriff, Terry Deese, a part of Anitra Gunn’s car was found near her body which was found around 3:20 pm.
Her body was recovered by a task force that had taken to the ground because the weather was too poor for an aerial search, and authorities said her body was partially covered.
