Body Found at Lake Mayer

Two joggers made a gruesome discovery at Lake Mayer yesterday when they stumbled across the body of 39-year-old Rosemary Simmons Black. Chatham County police say someone had stabbed her to death. 

"She apparently died of multiple stab wounds," police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wilson told us.

Though they've identified the body, they will not say whether the stabbing happened at Lake Mayer or somewhere else. They did say this act of violence doesn't appear to be random.

"There are signs that she fought fiercely before her death," Wilson said. "There are a number of defensive wounds about the body, and we're proceeding that she probably was acquainted with her attacker in some way."

So far this year, this is the fourth homicide Chatham County police have had to investigate. If you have any information about what happened to Rosemary Simmons Black, call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
