Columbus police investigate woman's body found lying between graves at local cemetery

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) - A local cemetery is at the center of a suspicious death investigation after a 34-year-old woman's body was found lying between the graves Sunday morning.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan confirms Michelle Chambers was pronounced dead just after 9 a.m. at Green Acres Cemetery off Schatulga Road. He also says there were no obvious signs of injury to her body.

Columbus police could only confirm Monday the case is not being investigated as a homicide; however, Chambers' death is considered "suspicious" considering her manner of death is still unknown. Police officers go on to say it is also unclear how Chambers ended up at the cemetery.

Bryan says Chambers' body was sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations crime lab for an autopsy and toxicology tests.
