DULUTH, GA - Police are asking for the public's help with identifying a woman whose remains were found in an abandoned Subway in the food court at Gwinnett Place Mall.
A maintenance worker said he was doing routine inspections of the units and that the side door to the restaurant was locked. He resorted to climbing over the counter to inspect the space.
