Woman found in storage bin had been reported missing

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) – A Lawrenceville woman found dead inside a storage bin on a homeowner’s lawn had been reported missing by her husband Jan. 1.

Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Deon Washington said Friday that the victim, 42-year-old Salathiel Zeno, last spoke to her estranged husband by phone in early December. The husband said he had not seen her in months.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution  reports a homeowner found Zeno inside the bin Thursday. It is not yet clear how the bin got on the property or how long it had been there.

The medical examiner’s office is working to determine a cause of death but said Zeno died three to five days ago.

Anyone with information should contact Gwinnett County police at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
