A Domino’s employee who was reported missing last week after mysteriously disappearing from work has been found dead in Madison County. 

The body of Helerica “Latrice” Dortch was found around 11 a.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Old Yazoo City and Heindle roads in Madison County. 

The 31-year-old was last seen on the afternoon of Friday, December 13th, leaving the Canton Domino’s location where she worked. It is unknown whether she was making a delivery or leaving for the work day.

Less than a day later, a local farmer found Dortch’s 2015 Chevrolet Malibu hiding behind some bushes and an abandoned house off Ransburg Road in Canton—five miles from where her body was eventually found.  

Her death is now under investigation by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.
