The 90-year-old Burlington woman missing since Sept. 8 was found dead near her 2005 Cadillac Deville off Buckshoal Road in Saturday morning, confirmed Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark.

A prayer vigil scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled.

Suggs' dog, at her side, is in the custody of Animal Control and is to be retrieved by Suggs' family.
