Police are looking Eliza FletcherMemphis’ teacher and mother, whose violent abduction was captured on surveillance video, found a body Monday night but has not been identified.
The development comes a day after police charged Cleotha Abston, a local man who served two decades behind bars for another kidnapping, with the kidnapping of Fletcher.
Fletcher—34-year-old granddaughter of hardware giant Orgill—Walking early Friday morning when she was ambushed and forced into a black GMC Terrain.
When she didn’t return home, her husband called the police, who found a string of leads that led them to Abston.
Among the evidence was a pair of slippers found at the kidnapping scene that contained his DNA – recorded since he was found guilty of robbing and kidnapping a defense attorney in 2001. Police said they also found a video of Abston wearing the sandals the day before Fletcher was kidnapped.
Additionally, pings from Abston’s cell phone showed it was located in the area where Fletcher was arrested at the time of her abduction, according to the police affidavit.
Ultimately, Abston’s brother, Mario Abston, told police he went to his home on Friday and washed the inside of his GMC and his clothes and was “acting strange,” police said.
Investigators said Cleotha Abston would not tell them Fletcher.
