GBI and Peach Co. Sheriff trying to link body found in Byron to missing woman

BYRON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks says results of the autopsy conducted on a body found in Byron were inconclusive.

Police discovered the body inside a shed behind the home of a Byron woman who was reported missing almost two months ago.

Now investigators with the GBI and Peach County Sheriff’s Office are trying to figure out if that body found is Amanda Gail Peeples–who was never located.

“They did not determine the cause and manner of death. That’s pending toxicology and some other things and we are not 100% sure if it’s Amanda Peeples I feel like it is but we can’t be 100% sure,” Rooks told 41NBC.

Rooks says there were no visible signs of what could’ve caused the woman’s death. The GBI is now trying to get medical records together to try and identify the body found.
