MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A day after finding the remains of a female body in the 3100 block of Hayneville Road police are identifying the woman.
Montgomery Police Department spokesman Captain Huey Thornton says the body is that of 21-year-old Malanco Hood.
Hood, who has relatives in the capital city, was not reported missing.
Family members told authorities that it was not uncommon for her to go weeks at a time without being seen or heard from.
The case is classified as a death investigation while investigators wait for additional information on her cause of death.
A man called police Monday afternoon saying he'd discovered a body.
When officers arrived on the scene they found the woman's badly decomposed body lying in the weeds on a steep slope off the north side of Ellis Drive.
The remains were taken to the State Department of Forensic Sciences for an autopsy.
