A Fulton County Medical Examiner in Buckhead has confirmed that a body found Monday evening is that of missing woman Stacey English, 36.
The ME finished the initial phase of an autopsy on the body Tuesday night, but didn’t confirm that the remains belonged to English until this morning. According Stacey’s family, their daughter received updated dental X-rays two days before she went missing and there was a delay obtaining the new records. The initial autopsy has not revealed her cause of death, and the medical examiner said more tests are needed.
Stacey’s body was discovered in an advanced stage of decomposition and was wedged under a tree only about a mile from the spot where police found her car abandoned still running Dec. 27.
When police notified Stacey’s family that a body was found on Monday, her aunt, Bernice English Hurks, said finding her niece’s body would be a relief in some ways. “The best thing that we could do right now is to find her regardless of what circumstances are, what conditions are, the best thing to do is to find her.”
At least the family doesn’t have to wait in worry any longer, but hopefully police will be able to give the family more answers surrounding her sad death soon.

(AJC) — Commission Chairman John Eaves said he was trying to fight the perception Fulton County has a dysfunctional government. But the way he went about it got him lambasted and accused of improprieties. Commissioners said he bucked county policy by hiring a personal media liaison and using a voucher to pay her $2,499.99 — one cent below the threshold that would land the payment on a report viewed by the board.
Under a 2002 resolution, Fulton commissioners are allowed four full-time employees. Commissioner Emma Darnell charged Eaves violated that, too. “You’re a thief when you send in a voucher for $2,499 to get a fifth employee,” she said at Wednesday’s commission meeting, after Eaves left early.
