Gwinnett police have identified a woman who was found dead at Yellow River Park in unincorporated Stone Mountain Wednesday morning.

Police Officer Senior Hideshi Valle said the body of Lithonia resident Tori Lang, 18, was found at the park, which is located at 3232 Juhan Road, and officers were called to the scene on an “unknown medical call” at 6:30 a.m.

Lang’s body was found dead under a tree and firefighter/paramedics who responded to the scene determined she died from a gunshot wound.

She was identified after police put out a public call for information about her identity, which included releasing details of four tattoos that she had on her body.

“The victim’s family saw the media release and tattoos on social media and notified law enforcement,” Valle said on Thursday.

The police department’s Homicide Unit is investigating the crime. Police have not released information about how they believe Lang ended up at the park and Valle said a motive for her killing has not yet been identified.

Anyone who has information about Lang’s death is asked to call detectives at 770 513-5300 or Atlanta Crime Stoppers, which let’s tipsters remain anonymous at 404-577-8477. They can also visit www.stopcrimeATL.com. There is a cash reward offered by Crime Stoppers for any information that leads to an arrest and an indictment.

Tipsters are asked to reference case No. 21-059388.
