JESUP, GA (WTOC) – Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are still trying to solve a deadly mystery on a train.

It started with 63-year-old Barbara Arteta and her husband Eugene. He fell asleep on the Amtrak train rolling through Georgia last week. When he woke up, his wife was nowhere to be found.  Once the train arrived in Florida he filed a missing persons report.  A short time later, authorities in Georgia found her body near the tracks in Jesup. She died of multiple injuries, including a broken neck.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has already talked to some of the 260 passengers aboard, and they're trying to find the rest.

If you were on Amtrak Auto Train #53 with the Arteta's, particularly passengers who were in cars 5310, 5311, 5312, 5313, or in the lounge area you asked to call the GBI Tipline at 1.800.597.8477.
