The body of a woman that had been found Tuesday in the Grand River in Onondaga has been identified as that of woman reported missing from Battle Creek.
Savanna Paige Jacklin was last known to be in Battle Creek, Michigan, in September of 2018.
On Friday, June 28, the Ingham County Sheriff's Office issued a statement saying that the body was that of 22 year of Savanna following DNA confirmation the same afternoon. The Michigan State Police began an investigation in March 2019 when she was reported missing.
