Eliza Fletcher: Memphis teacher kidnapped, isolated attack by a stranger

Memphis police officers announced that they discovered the remains of a body that was later determined to be Eliza Fletcher at approximately 5:07 p.m.

On Monday, "behind an empty duplex apartment" near the area where she was abducted.

Deputy Attorney General Steve Mulroy said officers had "no reason to think it was anything other than an isolated attack by a stranger."

Officials say it is too early to determine the location and manner of Fletcher's death.

When asked about any significance or connection between the empty building found by Abston-Henderson and Fletcher, a police department spokesman did not comment.

Tuesday after prosecutors said they had updated their charges to include first-degree murder, premeditated murder and manslaughter in the kidnapping crime.

Accused killer Cliotha Ebston-Henderson appeared before a judge at around 10 p.m.

Violence of any kind is, of course, unacceptable, but repeat violent offenders deserve a particularly strong response, Mulroy said.
