The body of a white female was discovered in the woods off Brewer Street in Asheboro, N.C.
Police used dental records to identify the girl as 22-year-old Shaunna Lyn Walley.
Police believe Shaunna had passed away about a week before her body was found by a passerby.
Shaunna's family describes her as a smart and caring girl.
Shaunna was the mother of 5-year-old girl.
About a year ago before her death, cops say Shaunna moved to Asheboro to live with her mother.
Cops say the wooded area where Shaunna's body was found is known to be seedy.
