“The identity of this person and the cause of death is unconfirmed at this time. The investigation is ongoing,” the tweet said.
Police have been searching the Memphis area for Fletcher, 34, since Friday. The mother of two was jogging around 4 a.m. when a black GMC Terrain SUV passed by her, according to surveillance footage obtained of the incident.

A man was then seen getting out of the vehicle and running “aggressively” toward Fletcher and forcing her into the passenger side of the SUV. Once both individuals were inside the SUV, the vehicle remained in a parking lot for about four minutes before driving away, according to the footage cited in an affidavit obtained by CNN.
