The death of a 29-year-old woman at a mobile home park on Wednesday is being investigated as a possible homicide, Bainbridge Public Safety Director Eric Miller said.

On Friday, BPS identified the deceased as Roberta Denise Clay, 29, of Bainbridge.

At approximately 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, BPS officers responded to the Pinecrest mobile home park off Fowlstown Road, after the woman’s relatives found her dead inside her residence, according to Miller.

“The circumstances surrounding her death are suspicious,” Miller said. “Public Safety and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are investigating the death as a possible homicide until proven otherwise.”

BPS investigators, GBI agents and the GBI’s mobile crime scene unit looked around the mobile home park Wednesday. An autopsy was performed at the GBI’s crime lab in Moultrie, Ga., on Thursday; the results are pending, Miller said.

Miller asks anyone with any information about what may have led to the woman’s death to call Bainbridge Public Safety at (229) 515-8597, or the GBI’s Thomasville office at (229) 225-4090.
