In the early hours of Friday morning, a bartender from Atlanta, Georgia was found dead after footage emerged of her being kidnapped from her front porch. According to a report from Daily Mail, 27-year-old Mariam Abdulrab had finished her shift at Revery VR Bar in the early hours of Friday morning, and stopped at a gas station before heading home.

Abdulrab's friend posted on Facebook, saying that Abdulrab had been followed home and kidnapped at her front door near Grant Park in southeast Atlanta.

The Atlanta Police Department said cops were called to 501 Burroughs Street around 5am when the 911 caller said she had been forced into a car. Surveillance footage obtained by WGCL-TV purports to show Abdulrab forced to get into the SUV.

An hour later, cops responded to a call reporting shots had been fired nearby but found nothing in the area. Her body was later found near 1907 Lakewood Avenue in the Lakewood Heights neighborhood by a witness who called police around 9.55am.

Investigators named Demarcus Brinkley, 27, as a person of interest and he was taken into custody in Griffin by the Georgia State Patrol.

Before his arrest, Brinkley allegedly led cops on a high-speed car chase that ended when he wrecked his blue 2013 Chevrolet Equinox into gold Buick, witness video posted to Facebook shows.
