Suspicious Death of Elderly Woman in Augusta


An elderly woman’s death in Augusta has been called “suspicious,” authorities said.

About 4:30 p.m. Thursday, deputies responded to the 2000 block of Powell Avenue, near Wrightsboro Road,  in reference to a deceased person. They arrived to find a deceased elderly white female, sheriff’s Sgt. Monica Belser said in a press release.

The woman’s name was not released pending notification of kin. And there was no mention of suspects.

“This investigation is in the early stages. More details will be provided during business hours upon availability,” Sgt. Belser said in the press release.
