HENRY County, Ga. (CBS46) -- Crime scene investigators combed through a wooded area Tuesday next to the Kroger shopping center off of Hudson Bridge Road in Stockbridge.
“It’s concerning, I mean it’s weird,” Henry County resident Angela Thompson said.
Police discovered unidentified human remains in the brush near Willis Drive and Oakwood Manor Drive.
“It’s very surprising to be honest because this is not normal. We’ll get things every now and then, but to get a body here just lying on the side of the street is different,” Henry County resident Demetrius Lewis said.
Dozens of law enforcement officers with the Henry County Police Department and GBI responded to the scene but would not discuss details of the crime.
“Almost two weeks ago a lady was murdered over on Hudson Bridge Road in a subdivision over there and her body has not been recovered at this time,” Henry County resident Darlene Likely said.
Needless to say, this has caused quite the commotion in the community for those at the shopping center next door.
“It bothers me a whole lot because this is a safe place. Stockbridge is a safe family-oriented place, secure, hardly any crime at all and it’s devastating,” Likely said.
Police have not identified the body or said how long the remains had been in the woods.
“It’s a fairly nice community. It’s quiet. It’s normally peaceful,” Thompson said.
The Henry County Police Department told CBS46 that they are working with GBI to determine if the remains are related to another case that occurred on Friday, July 9. The incident led to the arrest of three people at the Hudson Bridge Town Homes in Stockbridge. Cleounsee Frazier Fisher, Ronisha Preckwinkle, and Dennis Lane were arrested and charged with murder. All three suspects were transported to Henry County Jail.
