A body has been found in Riverside County, but police are not disclosing if it is the body of missing U.S. Marine wife Brittany Killgore of Fallbrook. Brittany has been missing since Friday evening, says Fox news.
The body was found off Warren Road, near Lake Skinner around 2:30 p.m. today. Investigators went to the area “based on leads stemming from the arrest of [Jessica] Lopez.”
“I can’t comment on the condition of the body that was found. We have not confirmed that the body is that of Brittany Killgore. The medical examiner will make that confirmation,” said Capt. Duncan Frasier of the San Diego County Sheriff’s office during a briefing.
Killgore’s husband, Cory, was on deployment during the incident.
Brittany Dawn Kilgore, 22, was last seen in Fallbrook around 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13. A friend of hers said that she may have been going to the Gaslamp area in downtown San Diego that night.
Early this morning, a man has been taken into custody on charges unrelated to her disappearance according to 10 News. The man was the last person to have seen Killgore.
The police found her cell phone at the Gaslamp, but the Sheriff’s department is saying that she never was there, reports 10News.
She was wearing a dark purple evening gown with glittery purple floral patterns.
Brittany is 5’8″ tall, brown hair, brown eyes and weighs 140 pounds.
