Georgia woman found dead on highway exit ramp in northwest Arkansas
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A 27 year-old woman from Conyers, Georgia was found dead along a Fayetteville exit ramp off Interstate 49 on Saturday.
The case is being investigated as a homicide, Arkansas State Police said in a news release. The woman was identified as Shaletian Robin Zetta Larry.
State police responded to a call on Saturday afternoon about a black 2006 BMW 325i sedan, displaying a Georgia license plate, driving recklessly in the southbound lanes of I-49. The car was later seen exiting the highway at the 67A off-ramp, police said.
As state troopers began searching for the car, a witness reported seeing a woman’s body fall from it. The driver then sped away, the witness told police. When officers arrived at the scene, the woman was dead.
Police found what they believe to be the suspect car at a Fayetteville apartment complex on Saturday night. They reportedly have one person in questioning.
According to the release, the manner and cause of the woman’s death still have to be determined by the state medical examiner.
