GBI Positively Identifies Missing Woman

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations Crime Lab has positively identified the human remains found last week as those of 73 year old Linda Mansfield whose son, John Roosevelt, is charged with her murder. The body was found in a hunting club about 150 yards off Georgia 32 near the Thalmann community. An indictment says Roosevelt beat his mother with the intention of causing her death. The crime scene is in the Marshes of MacKay subdivision off Highway 17 north.
