MACON, Ga. — The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after deputies found a woman dead at her home in northwest Macon Monday morning.
It happened on Winchester Place in the Barrington Hall subdivision just after 1:30 a.m. Someone found 49-year-old Cynthia Berry dead, but the sheriff’s office won’t say who discovered her body.
Macon-Bibb Coroner Leon Jones says he also can’t release details of how she died, per the request of the sheriff’s office.
Neighbors told 13WMAZ that Berry lived alone and recently moved in. Her daughter, Breanna, lives in Warner Robins but came by with her father to see what happened.
"You see this all the time in Macon and Warner Robins. People die all the time and we just kind of move on with our day. It's actually different when it happens to you. She was just a really sweet woman,” said Breanna.
She says her mother was going to turn 50 in May and that she moved here to start a new life away from a violent ex-boyfriend.
The sheriff’s office declined to comment on the case, but it is an ongoing investigation.
Anyone with information can call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at (478) 751-7500, or Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
