Kathie Ishman, 16, of Fortson, Ga., was found dead in her 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sunday.
The Georgia State Patrol say that sometime Saturday night Ishman was traveling on Whitesville Road, about one-tenth of a mile north of Columbus, and, for some reason, made an abrupt turn. The car went over a driveway at 10635 Whitesville Road and down into a pond. The car was not found until around 3 p.m. the next day. It had flipped over.
Ishman was wearing a seat belt. The body has been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation lab in Atlanta.
