JACKSON COUNTY, FL– A 19-year-old Florida woman who was reported missing nearly a week ago has been found dead.
Authorities announced the discovery of a body believed to be Anastasia Gilley early Wednesday morning near Headland, Alabama.
Gilley, who was four months pregnant at the time, was reported missing from her home in Jackson County on May 3rd.
Authorities say they arrested 33-year-old Marquis Devan McCloud from Alabama.
“Through investigations, we did determine that they knew each other and that they had talked and that’s what led us to interview the suspect initially. But the depth of their relationship is uncertain at this time,” Jackson County Sheriff Donald Edenfield said.
McCloud has been charged with capital murder during a first-degree kidnapping. He is also facing charges for violating his probation by going to Florida.
