Colorado Woman's Body Found In Georgia

The body of a missing Colorado woman has been found in Georgia where she was last seen hiking.

Just hours after a judge denied bond for 61–year–old Gary Hilton, 24–year–old Meredith Emerson's body was found.

Hilton is charged with kidnapping Emerson with intent of bodily injury. Details on where Emerson's remains were found have not been released.

Authorities in Georgia are exploring a possible link between Emerson's disappearance and the presumed killing of a couple from North Carolina last October. Officials did not elaborate, except to say there are "similarities.''
