Body of missing Ala. woman found in trash bin
OXFORD, Ala. (AP) — Police say the body of a missing Birmingham woman has been recovered and the suspect in her death has been arrested in Georgia.
Authorities say the body of 20-year-old Sara Mitchell was found in a trash bin Sunday evening in Oxford.
Oxford Police Chief Pat Brown told the Anniston Star that an employee of a nearby pharmacy found the woman's body when while taking out the trash.
Mitchell was reported missing by a relative Wednesday and investigators say an autopsy will determine her cause of death.
Police say a 23-year-old Birmingham man was arrested in connection with the woman's death at a rest stop in Haralson County, Ga. and will be extradited to Alabama.
Haralson County is about 50 miles east of Oxford, and 110 miles from Birmingham.
