FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- A Fulton County jury has found an Atlanta area man guilty in the 2011 death of his girlfriend.
Larry Harper, Jr. 38, was found guilty of murder, concealing the death of another and tampering with evidence in connect with the apparent strangulation death of Thandiwe Hunt, 20.
A mailman discovered Hunt's body in a wooded area near the intersection of Bagwell Street and Park Avenue in southwest Atlanta on Feb. 2, 2011.
The victim's nude body was wrapped in a plastic bag and secured by duct tape.
An autopsy revealed the young woman died as a result of "homicidal violence" and that her injuries were consistent with either strangulation or asphyxiation.
Harper and the victim were dating and living together at a hotel shortly before her death.
