Bartow sheriff investigates out-of-state lead in effort to ID dismembered woman

Investigators Working to Identify Body With Distinctive Tattoos Found in Georgia Landfill

The Bartow County sheriff said he’s investigating a lead in the effort to identify a woman who was found dismembered earlier in August.

In a news release, Sheriff Clark Millsap said investigators have gotten information about a missing woman from West Virginia.

“Investigators from the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office are working with state agencies to positively identify this victim,” officials said.

Earlier in August, authorities released a sketch of the woman described as being between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-6, weighting 150 pounds with brown or reddish hair. She’s believe to be between 18 and 35 years old.
