January 16--  Law enforcement officials are waiting on autopsy results to find out what killed a woman whose body was found in a Toombs County home last Friday.

Toombs County Coroner Ron Hall identifies the woman as 29-year-old Rebecca Holton and says her body was found on the living room floor in the home of John Mitchell on 588 C.V. Mosley Boulevard.

Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight says the woman was from Coffee County and had been living with Mitchell for about a year.  Mitchell works in Alabama and was not home when the body was found.

According to the sheriff, she was last seen at Walmart Tuesday and had been dead for at least two days when found.  The body was discovered when a friend of Mitchell's stopped by the house to feed Mitchell's cats last Friday morning.

The sheriff says there were no signs of foul play and the body was sent to the state crime lab in Atlanta to determine the cause of death.
