Body of woman killed on pizza run is found in park

NASHPORT, Ohio – Authorities say a 32-year-old man is a suspect in the abduction and slaying of a pizza delivery driver whose body was found in an eastern Ohio state park.

Guernsey County Sheriff Michael McCauley said Friday that Adam Charles Burris is believed to have abducted and killed 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, who did not return from a pizza delivery run Thursday.

Burris is being held on an unrelated domestic violence warrant and hasn’t been charged in this case. No attorney information was available.

McCauley said Burris led authorities to Thompson’s body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in Muskingum County, about 65 miles east of Columbus.

Deputies used Burris’ cellphone to track and stop him on Interstate 70 after he was reported to be driving the pizza delivery vehicle Thursday.
