[UPDATE] Woman’s Body Reportedly Found Near Grosse Tete
According to KATC, the body of a woman has been found near Grosse Tete, in a ditch on Rosedale Road.
Police are currently working to identify the body. Officials have yet to confirm if it's the body of Lyntell Washington, a teacher who went missing last week near the area. Washington's three-year-old daughter was found alone, wandering around a parking lot near by.
Last Friday Robert Marks, a 39-year-old assistant principal at the school where Washington has worked, was arrested and charged with kidnapping and child desertion related to the three-year-old girl.
KATC reports that a co-worker has stated that Washington was seven months pregnant with Marks' child, and had threatened to tell Marks' wife about their affair.
Along finding what police say was a "significant amount of blood" in the Robert Marks' car, they say the three-year-old told investigators that "Mr. Robbie had hurt her mother" and that she was now "sleeping".
She reportedly also told detectives her "mom is in the lake".
