The Arkansas State Police is investigating the death of a 27-year-old woman after her body was found alongside an exit off ramp on Interstate 49 on Dec. 26 in Fayetteville.

The State Police say the body is that of Shaletian Robin Zetta Larry of Conyers, Georgia.

Police say they received information at around 3:53 p.m. Saturday of a black 2006 BMW 325i four-door passenger sedan driving recklessly in the southbound lanes of I-49. The vehicle, which had a Georgia license plate, was seen exiting the highway at the 67A off-ramp.

According to police, a witness reported seeing a woman’s body fall from the BMW, and then the driver sped away. When state troopers arrived at the scene, the victim was dead, according to police. The off-ramp was closed to traffic for several hours as special agents of the Arkansas State Police’s criminal investigation division processed the crime scene.

The manner and cause of the woman’s death will be determined by the state medical examiner.

Police say they seized a vehicle as evidence from a Fayetteville apartment complex. According to police, the vehicle is believed to be the one seen by witnesses on I-49.

State police are questioning one person.
