GBI identifies remains as woman missing since 2005

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says skeletal remains found in Franklin County in 2007 have been identified as a Lilburn woman missing since 2005.

The victim was identified as 40-year-old Leslie Adams.

On Oct. 24, 2005, police performing a welfare check found Adams car parked outside the residence. Insides there were signs of possible foul play, including blood spattered at the foot of the bed and a shell casing from a .45 caliber bullet.

Spokesman John Bankhead said the GBI enlisted the FBI's help because of the condition of the remains.

FBI tests were inconclusive, but a human identification center in Texas determined the probability of the remains being Adams was greater than 1.52 billion to one.
