DeMarcus Little Named Person of Interest in Death of Anitra Gunn, Authorities Say

Nine days before Fort Valley State University student Anitra Gunn vanished without a trace on Valentine’s Day, her boyfriend allegedly smashed her apartment windows and slashed her car’s tires, authorities said. 

On Tuesday evening, the Fort Valley Police Police Department found Gunn’s body “partially covered” with sticks in a wooded area near a two-lane Crawford County road. Hours later, they declared DeMarcus Little, 23, a person of interest in her “death investigation.” 

“Thank you to all who helped search and post and call and prayed for Anitra’s return. We are processing the devastating news and kindly ask for respect and privacy during this time as we wrap our hearts and minds around all of this,” her father, Christopher Gunn, said in a statement to Headline News on Wednesday. “Please continue to pray for us as there are no words to describe this hurt. Information regarding services and where donations may be sent will be forthcoming.”

Little has not been charged in connection with the 23-year-old student’s death, but a police spokesperson told Headline News “charges may be forthcoming.”
