NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro police found a dead woman on the banks of the Cumberland River.

They're still looking for her killer.

An employee of at a brickyard discovered her body.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward if anyone can help solve the case.

Police said it was Oct. 5. Caroline Langley Grollnek climbed into a light-colored pickup truck with tinted windows. Police said she was a known prostitute.

The location was the corner of North First Street and Oldham Street.

"After that nobody has seen her," said Ricky Winfrey, a Metro detective.

Then at 3 p.m. on a Thursday nearly two weeks later an employee of the Alley Cassetty Brickyard on Oldham Street found Grollnek's body.

The remains lay in a ravine behind on the east bank of the Cumberland River.

"I attended the autopsy," Winfrey said. "The medical examiner did advise me that she was a victim of foul play."

Police won't say how she was murdered.

They believe the most likely suspect is a person who patronizes prostitutes in the area near First Street.

Grollnek liked to work the area, which is near the river.

"If anybody knows anybody that has that type of or is capable of that type of violence in that area down there they should call us so we can check them out," Winfrey said.
