A fisherman saw Guillory's body in the water by North Levy Road at about 11:30 a.m. Friday. Her body was recovered a short while later.
Investigators say her body had been in the water an estimated 24-hours before it was discovered, but this is only an estimate. The actual time could be different pending investigation.
