Woman found dead at Gwinnett mall ID'd as Georgia State student

Her body was found in an empty food court by a maintenance worker at Gwinnett Place Mall in Duluth on December 21, but she was only formally identified on Wednesday, Jan. 10.

On Wednesday, the Gwinnett Medical Examiner identified the body as 19-year-old Lawrenceville resident Silling A. Man.

The body had been found in an "advance state of decomposition", according to Fox News.

She was previously reported missing in October by a family member, but returned home shortly after.

Two days later - after the file was closed - she disappeared again.

No missing person reports were filed following her second disappearance.

She was last seen on November 20, when she picked up her paycheck at a different mall from the one where she was found.

This story first appeared in the New York Post and republished with permission. She was last enrolled for the Fall 2017 semester as a psychology major, and did not enroll in spring semester classes.

Man was a student at Georgia State University who had been missing since October 10, 2017.

The Medical Examiner's Office did not rule the case as a homicide as the details surrounding Man's death were being investigated.

Man was found by a maintenance worker checking a vacant area of the mall.

There were no surveillance cameras in the mall corridors at the time, police said.

A detective is looking into Silling's activities and acquaintances leading up to her death.

Authorities have asked that anyone with information to call the Gwinnett Police Department or Crime Stoppers Atlanta.

After discovering Man's body, Atlanta Journal-Constitution also spoke to the Gwinnett County commissioner Jace Brooks who said, "It's probably not a great reflection of the current private owners of the mall".
