ALBANY, GA (WALB) - ALBANY - The body of a woman has been found in the back of a car parked in the Walmart parking lot in Lee County.
The body was found in the backseat of a burgundy four-door Saturn, which had a Dougherty County tag.
The unidentified woman is white, and in her 50's. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating her death. They say there were no obvious signs of trauma.
"There was a lady laying in the back seat, and she was nude fro the waist down, and I told him not to look, and he told me I needed to call 911, and I did," said Annette Smith, who discovered the body.
Chief Deputy Lewis Harris of the Lee County Sheriff's Office said, "At this point it's hard to determine if there's any visible injuries to the victim. Once we get inside the car to investigate, we'll be able to tell more."
Investigators are interviewing store employees, and checking to see what they can find on surveillance video. They ask anyone who may have information to call the Americus GBI Office, or the Lee Co. sheriff.
An autopsy should be conducted Thursday."Pardon Our Noise, It's the Sound of Freedom" USMC New River Air Station, Jacksonville, North Carolina

Lee County death investigation continues
ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The woman found dead inside a car at Walmart had been dead for at least 10 hours.
Family members told Sheriff's investigators the last time they saw 58 year old Joyce Ann Hutchinson alive was Sunday night.
Her body was found around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in the backseat of a car parked outside the Walmart garden center. She was naked from the waist down. The crime lab performed an autopsy this afternoon and found no signs of trauma or foul play.
Right now, Hutchinson's death is considered to be from natural causes although toxicology results won't be complete for another eight weeks."Pardon Our Noise, It's the Sound of Freedom" USMC New River Air Station, Jacksonville, North Carolina

Does this sound like natural causes to you?
Strange, very strange. It just makes no sense, imo."Pardon Our Noise, It's the Sound of Freedom" USMC New River Air Station, Jacksonville, North Carolina

No it doesn't sound like a death from natural causes. Why would she have no clothing on from the waist down? Makes no sense to me either."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

Naked from the waist down ???
No trauma or foul play ?
Perhaps someone was GOING to rape her and she had a heart attack ?

What is also strange is she was supposed to have been dead for 10 hours.
This Super Walmart is busy constantly all during the day and is open 24 hours a day.
So I am hoping that they can see when her car drove in and parked by looking at the surveillance tapes.
I wonder if she was at someone's house and they gave her some bad drugs and she died and then they drove her there and left her.
They may have stripped her from the wast down trying to make it look like it was an attempted sexual assault.
It sure is puzzling though.

EDIT: nevermind... that commenter apparently is full of it.
I wonder what in the world happened. Someone maybe drove her there and dropped the car off? What about surveillance cameras.... I wonder if Walmart had any for that area. It was right in front of the garden center they said.Love never fails.

This happened about 20 miles from my home. Honestly, I don't think that they are making a huge deal out of this, WALB is in Albany, and also my local news station. I have seen this reported only twice. Its sad!Justice For Caylee Marie

She was nude from the waist up, not from the waist down (one of the comments on the the articles by a poster)

She also said that the women who died lived right up the road from Walmart.
