Lincoln County authorities investigating death



The body of a 33-year-old woman has been sent to the GBI crime lab in Atlanta after she was found dead Monday, Lincoln County Sheriff Bruce Beggs said.

The woman, identified as Tiffany Marshall, was found unresponsive by her roommate about 1 p.m. Law enforcement and first responders were dispatched to Partridge Town Road but were unable to revive her.

Beggs said investigators found no signs of foul play, but as a precaution the body has been sent to the state crime lab by Coroner Paul Reviere for a more thorough investigation.

The sheriff added that although preliminary indications appear that the death was a result of natural causes, his office wants to rule out criminal activity.

“We all are saddened by the loss of such a young life and ask that the community’s prayers be with her family during this time,” Beggs said.
