Boyfriend a suspect in South Georgia woman's death

September 30, 2003

Crisp County-  GBI agents are helping the Crisp County Sheriff's Department gather evidence in the murder of Suzy Neisent.

"We've interviewed a lot of witnesses," said Crisp County Sheriff Donnie Haralson. "We've canvassed the whole area, people that may have come by, people that live here, people where they work."

Neisent lived here with her boyfriend Ricky Bishop. When the two didn't show up for work at the end of the weekend, they're friends became worried.

After the couple's friends reported them missing to police, they came to the house and decided to go in this back window. Inside they saw the legs of a body.

Sheriff's deputies won't say exactly how Neisent died until autopsy results come back from the crime lab in Moultrie. But they did say her body was covered in debris, like sheets and boxes, as if someone was trying to conceal the body.

"We do believe foul play was involved, but it's just going to take us a little time to actually get that," Haralson said.

Tuesday evening, deputies learned Bishop had checked himself into the hospital in Montezuma Sunday. Later that day, a Macon County deputy took him to the Mental Detox Center in Sumter County where Crisp County investigators picked him up.

Suzy Neisent's two children are with their father.
