SCMPD investigates death of woman on Walthour Road

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are investigating after a 30-year-old woman was found dead in her home on Walthour Road.

Police are releasing very little details at this time, we still do not even know how she died.

Neighbors tell WTOC the woman had two children under the age of seven. They say the police had been at home investigating since 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Police will not say whether or not her death is suspicious, but we did see the SCMPD Crime Unit there, and the entire home was roped off with crime tape.

Family friends say the woman was married. They say the husband left with police earlier Saturday, but he was not in handcuffs.

WTOC spoke to one neighbor who says she did not know the woman very well, but was shocked when she found out.

"You never see it coming. I don't really know what else to say, except just pray for them," said neighbor, Brianne Woods. "You never expect it to happen to somebody so close or so near to you in your home."

WTOC will continue to follow this investigation.
