Police Investigate Suspicious Death

Chatham County police are investigating a bizarre case. Just after 3pm Saturday afternoon, officers were called to the Piggly Wiggly store in Sandfly. Seventy-nine-year-old Sarah Price told officers that she thought her purse got caught on a passing car. She lost her balance, fell and hit her head. She was taken to Memorial Health where she died this morning.

Police still have not ruled out the possibility of a robbery attempt or hit-and-run in this case. If you have any information, call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
