It's official: GBI crime lab experts say the body pulled from the Wilmington River Monday night is that of Swainsboro beautician Cindy Lynch.

It comes as no surprise to Thunderbolt police who have said since Tuesday they believed it was Lynch they recovered from the water.

This morning, the GBI gave a positive ID based on personal items and body scars found on the body matching Lynch.

Chief Steve Smith of Thunderbolt PD tells WTOC final autopsy results may take a little longer than expected, possibly a few weeks. Their investigation is ongoing.

Funeral services for Cindy Lynch will be held Sunday at Grace Community Church in Statesboro.
