February 29, 2004

Americus -- 29 year-old Priscilla Clark, of Americus, disappeared February 19th. Saturday, Bibb County Sheriffs found the naked body of a woman dumped in an abandoned mobile homes sales lot. The body was identified as Clark an Americus police say they believe she was murdered.

Police say a gruesome discovery in Bibb County ended their search for 29-year-old Prisicilla Clark of Americus, reported missing 10 days ago.

"Yesterday afternoon we were notified by authorities in Bibb County that she had been located apparently a victim of a homicide," says Sgt. Brett Murray of the Americus Police department.

Saturday, a person picking up cans found Clark's nude body in some brush in an abandon mobile home sales lot. She had been dead for two or three days.

"Everyone is torn up because she was a young beautiful kid you know and no one gets over the kids that easily," says Clark's father Walter Shelton.

"We don't have a clue of why somebody would want to murder our cousin it's just comes as a shock to all of us," says Sammie Clark the victim's cousin.

Clark's family says all they can do now is hold on to her memories.

"She loved kids also that's what made her so wonderful the kids looked up to her and she made everybody smile," says William Clark the victim's brother.

Clark's body was taken to the GBI crime lab in Atlanta to determine a cause of death.

Americus and Bibb County authorities are working together to figure out who killed Clark and to bring that answer to a family in pain.

The family is offering a five hundred dollar reward for any information that can help in the case. If you have any information call the Americus Police Department at 229-924-3678.
