Who took off the women's shoes and placed them next to her body? I hope that the police do a full investigation of this because it doesn't sound right.

Just a theory. She could have taken them off to walk in the water and then had a heart attack.

The shoes are not proven to be hers. They found shoes on the bank but they are not known to be hers or someone else's.

My brother was camping and found the body floating near his families campsite. He did not find the shoes and he was not fishing. Either the police found the shoes elsewhere, or that part is incorrect as the fisherman discover portion.

The woman was first discovered by my friend in the water along the campsite where we had spent the past 3 nights camping. The fisherman (who was also a camper) came up moments later and he was the one who called police. The woman was face-down in the water and fully clothed in jeans and a shirt. She was not wearing shoes. Shoes were in fact found on the bank nearby, but police really had no way to prove they belonged to her.

We were at the campsite all day Sunday fishing along the bank. We saw nothing at all suspicious--and we would have noticed. That evening we sat outside until the early morning hours and saw and heard nothing. We found the body at approximately 8:45 am Monday morning. How this woman ended up in the water less than 25 ft away from where we were camping is a complete mystery.

She was identified using her fingerprints. She was 31 years old. She had just gotten out of the military a few months ago. She lives by herself in GA and took MARTA to Stone Mountain. Her family resides in AL. Which is why they didn't know she was missing. They said it's not uncommon for her to walk long disances alone. They theorize she walked to the campground after getting to the park and took off her shoes on the bank and waded into the water (So yes the shoes were hers). The water is shallow by the bank and then drops straight down. Her family stated she didn't know how to swim. Authorities have ruled out foul play.

I haven't seen anything about her identity in the news. Why wouldn't that have been released? The explaination from "withheld" seems odd to me - the campground is not close to anything else in the park - not really a "walk-to" destination.

I am so sad to hear this had happened. Actually I am shocked. My family keeps telling oh stone mountain this and that. It know seems it is no longer safe. I have never been there before. I was looking forward to going there, but now I don't think so. I'll go when pigs fly. I am terribly sorry to those who are in loss of their loved one. My heart goes out to you in this terrible time.

I agree with why was not on the news. I was at the campground when she was found but did not know anything until I got home that Monday. Everything was quiet Sun night and Monday morn.
