CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Sheriff Glenn Kimbrel with Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says they believe the body was placed in the creek, and have officially declared it as a homicide.

”Pay attention to people coming into your neighborhood, somebody might be parked along the road as obviously if she was deposited there in that stream,” says Sheriff Kimbrel. “It was the vehicle involved, certainly, and the transporting individual and they would have had to stop along that area. So if someone happened to be traveling through that area over the weekend and we don’t know exactly what time she might have been placed there, but obviously had to been deposited there and our motor vehicle would have to have been used to get her at that location. So someone saw something along that roadway.”

Investigators are currently working to notify the next of kin.
