The medical examiner’s office with the GBI Crime Lab has confirmed the identity of the victim found at the Bartow County Landfill. According to Sheriff Clark Millsap, dental records were obtained and used to positively identify Courtney Dubois of West Virginia.
Sources have also told CVN that Dubois had an anonomous facebook page under the name of “Nicole Beers” . While researching the pages we noticed that Dubius is “freinds” with several individuals from northwest Georgia.
Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton retracted his statement from earlier tand said that positive identification had not been made on the remains of a woman found in a Bartow County landfill in August. Many have speculated that the remains were those of a missing Fairmount, West Virginia woman.
Guyton said Tuesday morning that an identification had been made, but later said the identification could not be confirmed until the GBI had completed their investigation.
Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton confirmed uesday that the remains of a woman found in a Bartow County landfill on August 13th were indeed those of missing Fairmount, West Virginia resident Courtney Dubois.
Dubois’ remains while emptying a trash compactor at the landfill. Since that time, local law enforcement had received numerous tips but was unable to make a positive identification. Sheriff Clark Millsap said that the body was cut into pieces, packed into individual bags, and placed into a dumpster.
Last week a Facebook post that contained pictures of Dubois and the matching tattoos found on the recovered body made its way around the internet. Many believed that the tattoos and facial features resembled that of Dubois. The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office told WBHF at the time that they could not confirm or deny that the body was that of the missing West Virginia woman, but that it was an ongoing investigation with the GBI.
Law enforcement is still not sure when the woman was killed, but it does have an idea of when her body was put inside the dumpster at the county recycling center located on Cedar Creek Road, which they believe was close to 5:30 on August 11th. There are no surveillance cameras at the aforementioned facility.
