A body discovered in a vacant Subway shop in the Gwinnett Place Mall in Duluth, Georgia has been identified.

After putting out a composite sketch depicting the woman they'd found, police identified her on January 10 as Silling Man, a 19-year-old from Lawrenceville, Ga.

Man's body was found to be in "an advanced state of decomposition", the incident report, filed December 21, stated.

The 19-year-old initially disappeared on October 8, but returned home shortly after a relative contacted police. Two days later, she disappeared again, picking up her final paycheck on November 20 from a different mall, Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, police said. A subsequent missing persons report was not filed.
