The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office has identified the woman whose body was found last week beside a roadway.

The body of Jennifer Michelle Chatham, 34, of Wendell was found about 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28, in the area of N.C. 50 and Pierce Road, about 14 miles south of Raleigh.

Chatham’s death “does not appear to be suspicious in nature,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release Wednesday.

The investigation is ongoing.
