A Sandersville, Georgia teacher had been found dead more than a week after she left a Mexican restaurant to meet a male acquaintance who is now in custody over her death.
46-year-old Tina Prince’s remains were found off Pleasant Grove Road in Washington County after an extensive search that started on May 28, when she was last seen alive.
The teacher was having dinner with family at the Puebla Mexican Restaurant when she got a call from a man with whom she had an “on-again-off-again” relationship, police said.
Prince told the family goodbye for the last time and drove to a local Walmart parking lot where her car was left.
“I never thought that someone would do something like that especially someone that had a relationship with her,” Prince’s nephew Mason Evans said.
“What I will miss most about her is her presence. How great she made you fell when you were around her. How loving she was. How compassionate she was about people.”
Police arrested 31-year-old Aaron Matthew Adams and charged him with concealing a death and false statements.
“I believed they would have been able to find her, and I had hoped so, but I do know that she’s in a better place. She was a great person, great with people and great with God,” Evans added.
