Ashley Lovett

Photo of Ashley Lovett. She is a young woman sitting in a hospital bed, feeding a bottle to a newborn infant. Her blond hair is tied back.Name: Ashley Lovett.
Died: October 2014; body found April 10, 2015.
Age at death: 27.
Cause of death: Unknown.
Location: Millen, Georgia, USA.
Disability: Intellectual disability.

Ashley was the mother of a baby which was taken away from her and placed with family members.

Ashley’s stepmother and half-brother, whom she lived with, did not report her death and collected her disability checks for several months after she died. When asked where Ashley was, they lied to investigators.

How Ashley died cannot be determined because her body was burned and buried more than a year before it was found; at that point only fragments were left to be identified by their DNA match to Ashley’s child, now two or three years old and living with family.

Perpetrator: Susan Lovett (stepmother), Christopher Eugene Lovette (half-brother); both pleaded guilty to concealing the death of a relative; both sentenced to 10 years prison and 10 years probation.
