Dougherty County --  Dougherty County Police and the GBI are investigating the deadly overdose of a Dougherty County woman.  

Investigators want to know who wrote the prescriptions for the medication 49-year-old Jennifer Walter took.  

EMS was called to Walter's home on Holly Hills Drive just after midnight Saturday for a medical call. Walter later died. Police say she ingested an undetermined amount of prescription medication.

Her body has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta to determine a cause of death.

"Anytime we have a situation with a death of any type, unless it's a completely anticipated medical death, and even those, we take a close look at,' said Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek. "It's much, much easier for us to do everything initially then to try and go back and reconstruct something after the fact so we're taking a look."

Jennifer Walter was the wife of Dr. Gregory Walter.
