Georgia College Student Found Dead After Going Missing On Valentine’s Day

The body of missing Fort Valley State University student Anitra Gunn was found on Tuesday. The 23-year-old student had been reported missing since Valentine’s Day by her family who said they had not heard from her for an “unusual amount of time.”

On Saturday, Georgia police began a search for Gunn, and on Monday they escalated the case and dedicated a task force to finding her. A $5,000 reward for any information regarding Gunn’s whereabouts was offered. 

According to a statement given to CNN from Fort Valley Chief Lawrence Spurgeon, Gunn’s car was found damaged with a torn bumper near her apartment. 

Peach County Sheriff Terry Deese told reporters with WGXA that Gunn was last seen with her boyfriend at his home on Friday. 

On Tuesday, GBI Special Agent JT Rickets confirmed that the young woman’s body was found in Crawford County near the Peach-Crawford County line. During a news conference, Deese stated that Gunn’s remains were partially covered “as if someone tried to hide it.” 

Deese confirmed that Gunn’s boyfriend is a person of interest and has been taken in for questioning, but has not been arrested.

Deese says the boyfriend isn’t being considered a suspect at this time and is cooperating with law enforcement. He has not been detained.
