ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Grief counselors are expected at a teenage girl’s high school after her body was found in a wooded area near the shoreline of Lake Lanier.

Authorities are encouraging anyone who might have information about 16-year-old Hannah Truelove to come forward. She was found dead late Friday in what police are treating as a suspicious death.

Hall County Deputy Coroner John Abernathy said Monday an autopsy has been done, but results aren’t being released because of the investigation.

Truelove was reported missing Thursday. Her body was found near the Lake Lanier Club apartments in Gainesville. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation assisted Hall County sheriff’s officials in processing the scene.

Police are also investigating whether the teenager had a stalker, and were examining her Twitter account for leads.
