About the current investigationWhen self-described hiker Mark Ethridge walked into that clearing in the woods, a body wrapped in a clear plastic tarp wasn't what he was looking for.

He could see it was a young woman with pink hair, and he could tell she was dead, so he called 911.

Was this woman killed in the woods or was her body just dumped there? And who wanted her dead?
