Rossana Delgado was reported missing on April 16, and discoveries by her husband tracking her phone made loved ones fear it was a bad game.
GILMER COUNTY, Ga. – Law enforcement agencies have identified four suspects and are working to learn the name of a fifth after a missing woman’s body was found during a social check.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation reported that around 7:00 a.m. on April 20, the Gilmer County Sheriff’s office discovered the body of 37-year-old Rossana Delgado, of Bethlehem, Georgia, while she was inspecting a house in Cherry Log.
Delgado was reported missing in Barrow County on April 16 and was last seen in DeKalb County that day.
Relatives who had not been informed of the discovery by Friday spoke to 11Alive about her disappearance and discoveries that led them to believe it was a bad game.
Her close friends said Delgado spoke to her husband around 7 p.m. last Friday night, just before picking up someone for their job. That was the last time he spoke to her. He reported her missing about eight hours later.
The surveillance video shows the final moments she was seen next to another woman in a Ross store in the Chamblee mall called Plaza Fiesta.
Friends and family don’t know who she is, but they said Delgado’s husband can follow his wife’s last steps on her phone. He was able to trace the phone to a house in DeKalb County and said the signal was on for about an hour before going to a public storage unit on Covington Highway. There Delgado’s husband found a face question with blood on it.
The day after those close to the mother of two spoke with 11Alive, the GBI released details of her death and the people they believe may be linked to it. According to a statement released on Saturday afternoon, investigators are looking for 30-year-old Megan Alyssa Colone from Stone Mountain, 35-year-old Juan Ayala-Rodriguez from Gainesville, 26-year-old Oscar Manuel Garcia from Austell and 29-year-old Mario Alberto Barbosa-Juarez from Oklahoma City Oklahoma.
A fifth person may also be involved but has not yet been identified. Authorities also said Colonoe may be using the pen name Grace Beda.
Currently, investigators believe the five may no longer be in Georgia.
