Body found in wooded area in Swainsboro

SWAINSBORO, GA (WFXG) -

Just another Saturday afternoon when group of young girls were riding their bikes this Swainsboro neighborhood…until they saw something in the woods.

"First my sister said it was a dead body," one of the girls said. "Then we said it might be a baby doll. So we went to go get grandpa, and he came to it and told us to go home."

Investigators say the children found the body of 37-year-old Jennifer Sutton in a vacant wooded lot between two houses. She was last seen alive around 3:30 a.m. Neighbors couldn't believe it was her.

Swainsboro police are working to figure out how Sutton died. They are treating this investigation like a homicide. Investigators say they have several persons of interests, but no arrests have been made.

"I still have dreams about that dead body," another girl said.

And even though the girls are still shaken up over the incident, they say they're doing better now that the body is gone.
