MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting the Moultrie Police Department with a death investigation.

Agents were called in around 7:20 a.m. Tuesday after a woman was found dead at her home on 3rd Avenue in Moultrie.

"It's just a shame, a hard pill to swallow that someone came out and hurt her this morning," said Shante King, a relative of the deceased woman.

"Seeing her laying on her step, it's just real sad," King explained.

King said her relative was kind to everyone.

"She talked to everybody. I mean she can help anybody, she can, she will," King explained.

Now King wants the community's help.

"Somebody knows something that happened. I mean bright daylight, somebody knows something," King said, "It's a shame whoever did it. They are going to pay for it."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Moultrie Police Department at (229) 985-3131

GBI cleared the scene around 4 p.m., but the investigation is ongoing.
