South Georgia woman found dead in creek

January 27, 2003

Valdosta - A South Georgia woman was found dead in a creek behind her home.

79-year-old Georgia Mae Corbett was found floating in a creek between Adair and Oliver Streets in Valdosta Saturday. She had drowned.

"There's a pretty steep embankment between her home and the creek and we found her shoes up at the top of that embankment, so we believe she just slipped out of her shoes, fell in and drowned," said Sgt. Steve Owens.

Investigators say the drowning was accidental and don't suspect foul play in the case.
