The body of a missing woman from Memphis is believed to have been found off a highway in Mississippi.

On Sunday (February 4), a body that investigators believe belongs to 30-year-old Kelly Sistrunk, who was reported missing in Memphis on January 28, was discovered by Marshall County deputies in a wooded area off Interstate 22, per Fox 13.

Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said it is believed Sistrunk was shot in the head. Investigators are still awaiting an autopsy report to declare an official cause of death. Sistrunk was found fully clothed, Dickerson noted.

Sistrunk's mother said she last saw her daughter sitting inside her vehicle in the driveway of her home around midnight. When Sistrunk's mother went to check on her 30 minutes later, the woman had disappeared but her vehicle was still there.

"They took away our daughter," Sistrunk's mother said.

Dickerson said the Marshall County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death as a homicide, and deputies are working "closely" with the Memphis Police Department.

It's unclear what exactly led deputies to Sistrunk's body. Dickerson noted that "modern technology" led to the discovery.
