Update:

Pinson, AL - A family is grieving over the death of a young woman found dead in Fairfield over the weekend.

A mom's heart is broken.

"She was loved by a lot of people and just a gentle soul. She wouldn't hurt a fly."

 Michelle Monroe Stewart's daughter, Megan Monroe, found dead at just 22-years-old. Her body, burned and left outside a vacant house on 40th street in Fairfield.

"I want to know what happened to her."

Thursday marks one week since Stewart saw Megan when she dropped her off at the Jefferson County Courthouse.

"I dropped her off and one of her close friends was going to pick her up."

A friend she planned on staying with until Saturday.

Stewart says Megan never called that friend to get picked up.

She was at the courthouse meeting another friend for lunch.

"I did talk with that girl that she was going to see that day. Megan was there, but everything seemed okay."

But Megan's family hasn't been able to find out what happened after that. Stewart has asked authorities to check surveillance video.

"I don't know if she was made to leave there, if she got in the car with somebody else."

Stewart started fearing the worst Sunday.

"I knew she wouldn't miss Easter, I knew she would be here."

When the coroner confirmed Megan's death, the family started searching for answers. They don't believe she was having problems with anyone she knew.

Stewart says, "We don't know even why she was in Fairfield, we don't know anyone in Fairfield, neither did she."

Monroe's grnadafather, Johnny Denson,  hopes someone will come forward with information.  "It was in the middle of the daytime. Step up, do the right thing because had I saw something that happened to your child. I'm going to do the right thing."

Stewart says, "She was loved and I know somebody knows something."

Police don't believe Megan Monroe died at the location where her body was found. They're now waiting for the autopsy. It should be completed in the next 4 to 6 weeks.

  If you have any information about this case, call Fairfield Police at 786-4111.
