When teenagers are reported missing in metro Atlanta, they are typically found safe before the media can even report it. Most often, teens that decide to run away turn up at friend’s house or with someone mom and dad don’t like. Or even better, the teens return home on their own.
But 16-year-old Hannah Truelove never came home. The Gainesville High School student’s family reported her missing Thursday night, according to police. Less than 24 hours later, her body was found in a wooded area behind her apartment complex.
Investigators have ruled Hannah’s death a homicide, but have not said publicly how she died. But detectives are taking a close look at the teen’s Twitter posts for more clues in the case, Craig Schneider reports. Should social media now be a standard part of police work? Should Tweets be taken seriously?
