A heartbreaking discovery has unfolded in the search for 30-year-old Kelly, who went missing from her Memphis, Tennessee, home late on Jan. 28.

Kimberly Sistrunk, Kelly’s mother, last saw her daughter seated inside her vehicle in their driveway. However, within a mere 30 minutes, Kelly had vanished, leaving her vehicle parked but empty.

Now, authorities in Marshall County, Mississippi, believe they may have found Kelly’s body, approximately 50 miles away from Memphis, in a wooded area off Interstate 22.

Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson confirmed to Fox13 that deputies discovered the body of a woman, believed to be Kelly, about four miles outside Holly Springs, Mississippi, on Sunday morning.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the woman, still clothed, had suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head. While an official cause of death is pending an autopsy report, authorities are treating the case as a homicide.

Kelly’s disappearance prompted the Memphis Police Department to issue a City Watch for a Missing and Endangered Person on January 31st.

The department noted on social media that it was unusual for Kelly not to maintain contact with her family or check in with her young son.

Sheriff Dickerson revealed to Fox13 that modern technology played a crucial role in leading investigators to the location of the body, although specific details were not disclosed.

Both the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and the Memphis Police Department are collaborating closely in the ongoing investigation.

In an emotionally charged interview with Fox13, Kimberly expressed the devastating impact of her daughter’s disappearance, particularly on Kelly’s 2-year-old son, who now faces life without his mother.

“They took away our daughter,” she lamented, grappling with the tragic loss and the unanswered questions surrounding Kelly’s untimely death.
