A woman faces a manslaughter charge after leaving an overdose victim in a driveway to die, according to police and media reports.
On March 22, deputies from the Jones County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia responded to a call for a dead woman. When officers arrived, they found Terri Potts, 59, dead in the driveway of her home.
Police said it was clear to investigators that Potts had been dead for several days, according to the sheriff’s office.
On April 7, police announced the arrest of Cynthia Foley, 55, in connection to the case. She was charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
Officials told WMAZ that they were waiting for autopsy results, but they believe Potts was overdosing when Foley drove the victim back to her home and left her in a driveway. The reckless charges was because Foley left and did not call 911 or seek medical attention.
The investigation is ongoing, and deputies say more arrests are expected.
