Body May Be Missing Woman; Police Say Body Found Tuesday by People Looking for Scrap Metal

Article excerpt

Jacksonville police said a body found Tuesday in a wooded area off East 31st Street may be that of a 19-year-old woman missing since Sunday.

Kalil Rennea Paris McCoy was last seen by friends after leaving a family get-together at a club. Family members printed fliers and have been trying to find her, according to two people who answered a phone number on the flier.

Positive identification had not been made but McCoy's family was notified of the discovery. The cause of death was not disclosed, but homicide Sgt. Dan Janson said foul play was involved.

The body was found about 6:30 p.m. at the dead end of East 31st near Haines Street by people searching the lot for scrap metal, Janson said.

Authorities arrested Shepard in Chicago in February. Witnesses reported Shepard's license plate after seeing Schott hit in a parking lot off Shetter Avenue Jan. 22.
