LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Authorities released audio of a 911 call made on the day a physician was found dead in her home by her husband.

The audio, released by the Lee County Sheriff's Office, detailed the dramatic situation from inside the home.

Investigators said 34-year-old Lisa Riley, a doctor with Phoebe Physician Group, was found dead in her home with a gunshot wound to her head.

According to a report, Lisa's husband Yathomas Riley told officers that he found her dead around 8:30 a.m. on Friday, and called 911.

Warning: There is some strong language in the call audio.

"I just came in from out of town, and my wife, I don't know what's going on, but she's in a room, and she's got blood coming out of her," Riley said in the call.

The dispatcher asked where his wife was bleeding from, and that's when Riley said, "she shot herself."

Lee County Sheriff's deputies arrived to the couple's home on Northampton road, and later called Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents for assistance.

Lisa Riley's body was taken to the GBI crime lab in Macon for an autopsy, which confirmed the cause of death.

The manner of her death is still under investigation.

A search of the Riley home revealed a small child inside. Investigators also found six guns.

Meanwhile, Yathomas Riley was arrested and taken into custody on a bond revocation for a separate charge unrelated to the death of his wife.

He has not been charged in connection to her death.

Riley was previously charged with three counts of aggravated assault from a domestic dispute in June. He was granted bond at the time that prohibited him from being in a home with firearms.

Yathomas Riley was booked into the Lee County Jail, and is expected to appear at a bond hearing that was deferred until Tuesday, July 21 at 1 p.m.
