Remains Found Belong to Missing Georgia Woman

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, tests conducted on bones recently found in Georgia are those of  Kristi Cornwell, who went missing nearly a year and a half ago.

From CNN:

Cornwell, 38, was last seen in northern Georgia in August 2009, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said Sunday.

Passersby found the human remains Saturday in a wooded area about 9 miles from where Cornwell was last seen.

The site where the bones were discovered is in Union County, in far northern Georgia.

“What you do first is compare people missing from Union County,” Bankhead told CNN Atlanta affiliate WSB. “Right now, the only person missing from Union County is Kristi Cornwell, so we’ll be looking to see if there might be (a) connection to these remains.”

Bankhead said that Cornwell’s family has been notified of the discovery.

    It was reported on all News coverage tonight that it was actually Kristi’s own Brother who found her Remains, after Investigators had turned-over some information to him. Her Body had been burned and partially buried in a remote and densely-wooded area, normally used for Hunting, and only accessable by ATV’s. Residents in the surrounding area claim that no Stranger would know of it. It was also confirmed that this particular area was never searched by Police. This is truly a shame, but I’m glad, as I saw her Family was, that Kristi at least has been found and can have the proper burial she deserves. I really hope that her discovery will provide some new and useful leads in trying to solve what happened, why, and by whom. RIP.
