The body was identified using dental records, reports CBS Atlanta. The medical examiner reportedly said further investigation and testing will need to be performed which will probably take several weeks to complete

Some men looking for scrap metal discovered English's remains under a fallen tree in southeast Atlanta at about 3 p.m. Monday, reports CBS Atlanta.

Members of English's family reportedly rushed to the scene where the body was discovered, but authorities would not let them view it.

It's unclear if English was killed by the fallen tree, or if the tree fell on her after her death.

According to the Atlantic Journal-Constitution, English's vehicle was discovered on Dec. 27, with the engine still running, less than a mile away from the wooded area where her body was discovered.

According to her family, English was last seen in her home on Lenox Road on or around Christmas Day.
