COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Georgia are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found under a bridge.

Cortney Morrison with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office tells WSB-TV that 27-year-old Kelly Marshall’s body was found on Saturday by kayakers under a bridge along the Yellow River. A cause of death isn’t yet known.

Marshall’s stepfather, Joseph Rayson, tells WSB-TV that Marshall was last seen Friday night with her boyfriend.

Morrison says Marshall’s boyfriend hasn’t been called a suspect or a person of interest. He’s currently at the Walton County Jail on charges related to a police chase.

Marshall’s body was taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab for an autopsy.

Marshall had two young children and didn’t live far from the Yellow River.
