Georgia: Body of missing Lyft driver Kim Mason found under man’s house |  US News

The body of a taxi driver missing in the US state of Georgia has been found under a man’s house.

Kim Mason, a driver for the Lyft app, was reported missing by her fiance after she failed to come home from work in Gwinnett County on Sunday.

Her partner reportedly called her cell phone around 3 a.m. the next morning and received a text message telling her that she was driving passengers.

Police were told of his location and a warrant was subsequently issued to search a house near Bethlehem on Monday evening, local media reported.

Officers found a body buried in the crawl space under the property on Tuesday, Barrow County Sheriff Judd Smith told WAGA-TV.

He was later identified as Mrs. Mason.

Adam Heard, the occupant of the house, was arrested and charged with concealing a death, tampering with evidence, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft of a motor vehicle.

He was further charged with violating the terms of his probation for another offense.

Heard has been jailed and will appear in court at a later date.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has ordered an autopsy on Ms Mason’s death, but the cause is not yet clear.

Heard could face additional charges depending on the result of the autopsy, police said.
