Lee County -- We have new details in the murder investigation of a 23-year-old Lee County woman.

We've learned that the victim's young daughter was inside the Winding Way apartment when her mother was discovered brutally murdered.

The young girl was found unharmed when Lee County deputies arrived at the apartment Friday afternoon.

Authorities responded when family members of Nicole Judge became worried because they could not get in touch with her.

GBI agents are now two days into the investigation and have not left the crime scene.

They are continuing to collect evidence from inside the apartment.

While agents say there are no suspects at this time, they are asking for the publics help in gathering more information.

"Right now we're just asking the public if they heard anything or saw anything unusual, particularly at this location anytime Thursday night - if they saw any vehicles or saw anyone at this location to please the Lee County Sheriff's Office or the GBI to let us know," said GBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Trebor Randall

Investigators say the victims family last spoke to her early Thursday.

Judge's body has been transported to the state crime lab in Dekalb County for an autopsy.
