The Metro Police in Nashville, Tennessee, have confirmed that remains found on Saturday belong to Emily Bradley, who went missing after leaving her home in the city last month.

The 44-year-old’s remains were pulled from Whites Creek near Buena Vista Pike, and the Medical Examiner’s Office stated that she appeared to have died from a blunt force trauma. The case is being treated as a homicide.

Bradley was officially reported missing on February 21, but the police say she was last seen alive on February 18.

She was spotted driving away from her home in her silver 2014 Chevrolet Cruze, with a Florida license plate 086PML and a significant dent on the trunk.

Her home on the Eastside of town is about a 15-minute drive from where her body was found to the north of Nashville.

Bradley’s family and friends had expressed great concern for her safety. After she vanished, her emotional support dog was found home alone along with a running heater, which all set off alarm bells about her safety, as she would never leave her dog alone.

Her family suspects she may have been a victim of domestic abuse. Until yesterday, Bradley’s family and friends had remained hopeful that she may come home to them and were distributing flyers throughout the city.

A friend told WSMV 4, “I don’t know how to say it, but I know something bad has happened. But I’m hoping for the best.” Yesterday’s confirmation of her murder will come as a bitter blow.

MNPD requests the help of public in finding Emily Bradley killer

The police have still not found the Chevrolet and have appealed to the public for help locating it. The investigators said license plate readers in Hendersonville, a suburb northeast of Nashville, registered a hit for the car on February 21. But unfortunately, they could not tell who was driving or where the vehicle ended up.

The investigators are hoping to gather as much information about the case as possible. They hope that members of the public who spotted Bradley in the days and hours before she died can come forward. The cops have not said if they have any leads.

Bradley was described as 5’2” tall and 125 pounds with blue eyes.

The MNPD has asked that anyone with any information about the crime to please call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463 or the Department of Emergency Communications at 615-862-8600.”
