Abree Boykin, 24, was discovered that evening during a military police welfare check, according to a Tuesday release from CID. Authorities are looking for the driver of a black Honda Accord, with Georgia license plate RLQ1762, the release said.
“Our investigation remains ongoing, and I can assure you our special agents are working around the clock on this case and have made significant progress,” Christopher Grey, spokesman for Army CID, said in the release. “At this point in the investigation we believe this was an isolated incident and the victim possibly knew her assailant.”
Boykin’s husband, a 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division soldier, had been deployed to South Korea at the time of her death, according to a Facebook post from Fort Stewart Hunter Army Airfield.
“We have no reason or evidence to believe that the Fort Stewart community is at further risk related to this tragic death," Grey said.
