ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County officials will investigate allegations that the Coroner stole jewelry and money from a body in 2007.
Monday morning, Martha Baker asked the County Commission to look into her complaint that Coroner Emma Quimbley took jewelry and money from her mother.
Chairman Jeff Sinyard assigned County Administrator Richard Crowdis and County Attorney Spencer Lee to investigate.
Quimbley responded when 67-year-old Betty England was found dead at her home on Owens Avenue May 30, 2007.
A police report indicates Quimbley took a gold necklace, two gold bracelets, five pairs of earrings, and England's wallet with more than 84-dollars in it.
"I'll feel better when something's done," said Baker. "Because like I say, I've went through Nathan Davis, Alfred Lott, tried to go through the Mayor, but he wouldn't talk to me. He sent Alfred Lott to talk to me. I've tried every avenue I know."
Quimbley said she gave the jewelry and money to England's sister, and she will cooperate with the County investigation.
