Vigil for unidentified woman found in Bartow landfill

- It's been nearly a month since a woman was found dismembered in a Bartow County landfill. Since that time, authorities say they have received numerous tips, but have been unable to make a positive identification.

On Sunday, a group of citizens gathered at the Bartow County Courthouse to pray for movement in the case. 

Pastor Keith Milner joined nearly 20 neighbors, organized through Facebook, to pray for justice and answers to the horrifying scene.

"We pray for this soul, whoever she is, she was loved" Milner remarked during the prayer service. 

Neighbors have begun to refer to the woman as "Angel" until her identity is uncovered. A makeshift memorial was placed at the Bartow County waste transfer station where she was believed to have been dumped.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says more than 300 phone calls have come in about the case, but little is known at this point.
