The body found in an abandoned home near Bladenboro has been identified as Samantha Christina White.

White, 26, was last seen Oct. 6 in Bladenboro, according to Mac Warner of the Bladen Sheriff’s Office. White lived on Juniper Street. Her boyfriend contacted Bladenboro Police to report her missing Oct. 9.

White’s body was found Monday (Oct. 11) in an empty house on Lawrence Brown Road, off Center Road near Bladenboro. An anonymous caller called a Bladen County newspaper to report the body. The newspaper contacted the sheriff’s office, and deputies found the woman’s remains.

White was identified after an autopsy at the state medical examiner’s office in Raleigh. A cause of death has not been released and the investigation is continuing, Warner said.
