JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - A body found on the campus of Minor Community School on May 23, 2022 has been identified.

Ashley Neal Mitchell was 42 years old, according to the Jefferson County Coroner.

In a letter to parents, Minor Community School principal Dr. Mark Nixon said the person was discovered on the walking track at the school, which is a route students use to walk home. When the body was found, a teacher escorted students to take a different walk, and students didn’t realize what they were seeing.

Authorities say there has not been any evidence of trauma or foul play. An autopsy will be done Wednesday.
