Anitra Gunnn's body has been discovered by police near the border of Crawford County and Peach County, Special Agent JT Ricketson confirmed, according to WMAZ. 

Her boyfriend DeMarcus Little, 23, of Chestnut Hill Road in Fort Valley, was arrested on Tuesday for an attack on her apartment, WMAZ said.

Little is accused of smashing the window's at Gunn's home and slashing the tires on her car on February 5 - nine days before she disappeared, Fort Valley police said.

County Sheriff Terry Deese said in a press conference on Tuesday night that little had been interviewed three times by police. His car was also said to have been towed before his arrest.

Deese said he would not release more information about the boyfriend's interviews. 

Gunn's body was found partially covered near Greer Road 'as if someone tried to hide it' - as well as a piece of a car -  on Tuesday afternoon, Deese said. 

Gunn was reportedly last seen on the morning of February 14 on Chestnut Hill Road in Fort Valley at her boyfriend's aunt's home.

The student's concerned family contacted police the following day and her Chevy Cruze car was found with the bumper missing in the city limits of Fort Valley.   

The body was found near a front bumper, which deputies believe belongs to Gunn's car.
