 The family of a woman who was found dead on the side of a road in Thomas County with severe head injuries is speaking out about her death. They've also set up a memorial fund in her name.

Family and friends are still in shock over the sudden death of 38-year-old Jennifer Mims. Mims’s younger brother, David, says she was an amazing woman and mother to her three sons Andrew, Alex and Hunter.

"She was truly special, without a doubt, huge heart, very caring person,” said David Baker Jr., younger brother. “She would always go out of her way for you."

A passerby found Mims on the side of Stewart Road in Thomas County with severe head injuries. The GBI is still trying to determine if Mims was hit by a car or assaulted. Baker immediately drove down from Tennessee after he found out the news.

"Actually the first night we were here, I woke up thinking the phone was ringing and kind of felt like I was all back in that situation,” said Baker.

Family members have set up the Jennifer Wurst Mims Memorial Fund through the Thomasville National Bank. The money will help with funeral costs and other expenses for the family.

"Anybody can donate, I mean anything, absolutely anything will help,” said Baker.

They're also hoping someone will come forward with answers in her death to bring closure to the family.

"So if there is anybody that has any information in regards to the incident itself or has anything they would like to share with the GBI, we ask them to come forward, please,” said Baker.

No funeral arrangements have been made at this time. To help donate to the family you can contact Roberta Sealy at 229-985-9404 or click here.
