Body found in lake at Cherokee County apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

The body of an elderly woman was found in a Cherokee County apartment complex lake Thursday.

The Cherokee Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the Waldan Pond apartment complex on Waldan Circle in Acworth after a resident found the body floating in the lake. The 911 call was made around 1:30 p.m.

Officers identified the woman as Betty West, 74. She was a longtime resident of the apartment complex.

Police said Saturday an autopsy report indicated she drowned, but no foul play is expected.

West was found by the shoreline at the bottom of a steep embankment. Investigators with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office are investigating. An autopsy will be performed on Saturday to determine a cause of death.
