Homicide victim found along Fayetteville I-49 exit ramp
A 27 year-old Conyers, Georgia woman was found dead along a Fayetteville exit ramp off Interstate 49 Saturday.
Arkansas State Police Special Agents have identified the victim as Shaletian Robin Zetta Larry. The case is being investigated as a homicide, according to a state police news release.
Information was received by police about 3:53 p.m. Saturday of a black 2006 BMW 325i four-door passenger sedan with a Georgia license plate being driven recklessly in the southbound lanes of I-49. The car was later seen exiting the highway at the 67A off-ramp.
As state troopers converged in the area searching for the car, a witness reported seeing a woman’s body fall from the car, the release adds. The driver then sped away. When troopers arrived at the scene, the victim was dead and the interstate off-ramp was closed to traffic for several hours while special agents processed the crime scene. The manner and cause of the woman’s death will be determined by the state medical examiner.
Working with local law enforcement agencies, state police criminal investigation division special agents seized as evidence a vehicle found at a Fayetteville apartment complex. It is believed to be the one seen by witnesses on I-49. State police special agents are currently questioning one person.
