Remains Of Missing 22-Year-Old Tennesse Woman Found In Woods, Foul Play Suspected
Mya Fuller was last seen at a Nashville Soccer Club gathering on July 30, according to officials.
Authorities are scrambling for any leads pertaining to the murder of a missing 22-year-old woman whose remains were found in Tennessee earlier this month.
On Aug. 6, Mya Fuller’s remains were found by investigators in a remote wooded area in a field on Trammel Lane in southeast Wilson County. Her remains have since been positively identified, the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office announced on Tuesday.
"Off Trammel Lane, it was probably 150 yards up where she was located by the property owner," Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan said, according to WTVF-TV. "We see an innocent 22-year-old girl laying out in the middle of nowhere, dead. It's sad.”
Fuller was reported missing from Murfreesboro, Tennessee last month. Relatives last saw her on July 29. She participated in a Nashville Soccer Club event at Geodis Park in south Nashville the following day. Foul play is suspected. No arrests have been made.
"We are pursuing several leads right now about this case. We want everyone to know we will find out who done this," Bryan said. "We want the family to know we'll find out who did this."
Autopsy information for Fuller wasn’t immediately available. Her cause or manner of death hasn’t been released. Oxygen.com has reached out to the Wilson County Medical Examiner for more information.
Officials described Fuller as a “good girl” who came from a tight-knit family. She lived with her parents in Murfreesboro, according to county authorities.
"[She] talked to her family every day," Bryan said, WTVF-TV reported. "The family wants to find out who is responsible for this. They are grieving. ... They are burying their 22-year-old daughter."
A spokesperson for the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office didn’t respond to Oxygen.com’s questions regarding the case on Friday afternoon.
Authorities are offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 regarding any information that leads to the identification and successful prosecution of a suspect in the case.
Anyone with additional information is urged to submit an anonymous tip via the Wilson County Sheriff's Office by calling 615-444-1459, ext. 233 or 359.
