PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) - Russell County authorities say a 20-year-old woman found dead just off Alabama 165 was murdered.
Sheriff's investigators identified the victim as Stephanie Shea Graham of Westside Court in Phenix City.
Graham's body was found on the side of Bowden Road about 100 yards from Alabama 165 in the Cottonton area around midnight Thursday.
Sheriff's Lieutenant Heath Taylor declined to reveal an exact cause of death, but says Graham was probably killed at the scene. There are no immediate suspects.
The body was spotted by a truck driver who called 911. He also was a 17-year veteran of the Eufaula Police Department.
