Missing Lamar County woman's body found; cause unclear

The body of a missing Georgia woman was found in a wooded area in Monroe County.

Lori Williams, 39, of Lamar County, had been reported missing since May 2, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities had found her car a day earlier about a mile away.

Her body was found Monday afternoon. Monroe County sheriff’s Sgt. Lawson Bittick says it’s unclear if Williams died of homicide, suicide or natural causes. Her body has been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab for an autopsy.

Her husband, Robby Williams, says she called him before she disappeared and asked him to bring gas for her car, but her speech was slurred and she didn’t know where she was.

One of Williams’ sons was killed in a car crash in March.
