The body of a Clark Atlanta University student who’d been missing since Oct. 30 has been discovered.
Twenty-one-year-old Alexis Crawford was found dead at Exchange Park in DeKalb County on Friday. Police discovered her body with the aid of her roommate Jordan Jones, reports WBS-TV. When Crawford went missing, Jones told police the last time she saw her was on Thursday night after she’d taken Crawford, a senior at the university, to the liquor store. It’s not yet been established how the roommate knew where Crawford’s body was.
Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields spoke of the devastating discovery during a press conference late Friday afternoon. During the conference, she revealed that just three days before going missing, Crawford reported her roommate’s boyfriend, Barron Brantley, to police after he allegedly forcibly touched and kissed her.Additionally, 11Alive reports that as of October 26, Crawford stopped sleeping in her bedroom. She reportedly told friends she no longer felt “comfortable” sleeping in her bedroom. Police are currently working on obtaining warrants for both the roommate and her boyfriend who are being considered as suspects in the disappearance.
Shields apologized to the young woman’s family during the conference.
