Posted April 17, 2013
Fayetteville, N.C. — Cumberland County authorities identified a woman Wednesday whose body was found Saturday behind the Fayetteville Boys and Girls Club on Cumberland Road.
Michelle Lynne Powell, 31, had been missing since March 8 before being found Saturday morning by a passer-by.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner used dental records to confirm Powell's identity, but authorities said no cause of death has been determined.
Detectives said in March that Powell recently suffered a stroke and was paralyzed on the left side of her body.
Powell's family told detectives they were worried because she didn't have medications with her when she went missing.
