The power of social media continues to prevail, and multiple users have teamed up to find the missing 18-year-old Louisiana State University (LSU) student Kori Gauthier. Kori had not been seen since April 6 and her vehicle was found unoccupied at the scene of the accident on the I-10 bridge in Baton Rouge. Users flooded Twitter, sharing their photo and information about their last whereabouts. Unfortunately, news of the worst result was published today. Kori’s body was found in Mississippi on Tuesday, according to a joint press release from the Baton Rouge Police and LSU Police.
LSU Police Chief Bart Thompson said in a statement: “Since Kori was first reported missing, the LSU Police Department, Baton Rouge Police Department and other law enforcement agencies and volunteers have taken extensive measures to locate and identify her to determine Determine what led to their disappearance. “Chef Thompson continued,” This is a difficult conclusion for all of us, but we hope this will bring the Gauthier family to a conclusion. “
Chief Thompson also shared information on Kori’s case. He stated, “Based on cell phone tracking, video footage and a timeline of events related to this case – combined with other evidence we shared with Kori’s parents that we are not free to disclose out of respect for their privacy – we have concluded that it was not criminal activity or foul play. “
Many roommates left comments and prayers for Kori’s family. One commented: “This world is so bad. I am so sorry. Prayers for you and your family! “Another commented,” My heart goes out to your loved ones … I’m so sorry baby. May you rest in peace. “
In addition, the police released a statement from Kori’s family: “The Gauthier family asked for their sincere thanks to all law enforcement officers and volunteers who helped with the investigation and search. They also thank everyone for their support during this time and ask that you respect your privacy in the coming days and weeks. “
