Floyd County po­lice and the coro­ner have iden­ti­fied the woman whose body was found on Cun­ning­ham Road as Karen Hope Parr, 32, of a Lynn Drive ad­dress in Coosa.

Po­lice spokesman Jerome Poole said her body was sent to the GBI Crime Lab for au­topsy and de­tec­tives are con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“They were out there go­ing door to door, but there’s noth­ing new to re­port to­day,” Poole said Thurs­day.

County Coro­ner Gene Proc­tor said he pro­nounced Parr dead at the scene Wed­nes­day evening, but her body had been there “in ex­cess of 12 to 18 hours.” He’s wait­ing for the GBI to de­ter­mine how she died.

“We’re not sure of all the facts at this point, so it’s be­ing worked as a sus­pi­cious death,” Proc­tor said.

The body was found on the side of the nar­row road, near a fence across the ser­vice road to a wa­ter tower. Cun­ning­ham Road is off U.S. 411 be­tween Six Mile and Cave Spring.

Poole said some­one called 911 at around 4:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day to re­port the woman’s body.

High­way 411 was closed to traf­fic in the area for a lit­tle over two hours while in­ves­ti­ga­tors searched the scene.
