Detectives said the investigation led them to search Catron’s residence where she was discovered.

The coroner’s office has confirmed the remains are of Catron, but the office is sending her body to Atlanta for further inspection.

Columbus police chief Freddie Blackmon said foul play is a possibility at this time, WTVM reported.

This comes after police said Catron may have traveled from Columbus, Georgia, to Destin, Florida in November 2021.
