DYER COUNTY, Tenn. — State authorities were called to Dyer County on Tuesday after a woman’s body was found in a wooded area.
According to the Dyer County Sheriff’s Office, they received a call around 6 p.m. stating that a woman had been found dead near South Rosemont Cove, which is just outside the city limits.
Authorities said they do not know who the woman is, how she died or who may be responsible.
But residents like Nickey Lawson are wondering if the discovery had anything to do with the disappearance of Shelby Hubbard.
“I hope it ain’t her, but it is sad. I have a bunch of kids, a lot of girls,” he said.
Police say Hubbard was last seen walking away from a home in February. The home is close to the wooded area where the unidentified woman’s body was found.
The investigation has been handed over to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
