GAINESVILLE, Ga. -

Authorities say they're chasing down dozens of possible leads in the death of a 16-year-old Gainesville girl.

Hannah Truelove's body was found in the woods behind her Gainesville apartment complex on Friday, and police are treating the death as a homicide.

Hall County sheriff's Sgt. Kiley Sargent told The Times of Gainesville (http://bit.ly/RXY9uv) that the department has received at least 50 calls about the case.

Police have said that Truelove received injuries that "were indicative that she died from a violent death." Autopsy results haven't been released.

Sargent has said that authorities don't believe it was a random assault and have information that Truelove may have known her attacker.

Funeral services for Truelove are scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday at Timber Ridge Baptist Church.
