Georgia sheriff investigating if dismembered body found in landfill is missing West Virginia woman

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, who is described as being between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 6 inches, weighs 150 pounds and has brown or reddish hair. She's believed to be between 18 and 35 years old.

She also has two names tattooed on each of her shoulder blades and a tattoo on her chest, authorities said.

Her dismembered body was found dumped Aug. 15 at a recycling plant.

"I've been doing this 35 years, and I've never seen something like this before," Millsap said after the discovery of the body. "Because of the way it happened and the dismemberment, it's a very disturbing case."
