Authorities say a man cutting grass early Friday morning at East Stonewall AME Zion Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, smelled something strange, which turned out to be 19-year-old Ashanti Billie’s body.
Billie was reported missing two weeks ago when she didn’t show up to the sandwich shop where she worked in Norfolk, Virginia.
Police haven’t released a cause of death, but the FBI believes she may have been murdered, and have launched a manhunt to track down her killer, according to NBC
It remains unclear if authorities are pursuing a specific suspect.
Billie, a culinary arts student who had recently graduated from high school, was last seen at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek on September 18.
She was thought to be arriving at work at the Blimpie sandwich shop where she was employed as an assistant manager.
Her car was then spotted by neighbor’s on September 23 abandoned on a dead-end street in the Ocean View part of Norfolk.
‘It is with deep regret that I inform the community that Ashanti Billie has been located, deceased, in Charlotte, North Carolina,’ FBI special agent Martin Culbreth said in a statement.
