BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Alabama authorities have identified a woman’s body that was discovered after a kidnapping victim called for help and told officers she had knowledge of a homicide. Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies found 31-year-old Kellie Ann Hughes slain on Friday in a wooded area near a Birmingham hospital. Upon being saved by deputies, the unidentified woman gave investigators information that led them to the body. A chief deputy says two suspects have been identified and a bulletin has been issued for a stolen rental car. Kellie Hughes’ brother told news outlets he has no idea why someone would have wanted to harm his sister.
