Police discover body of a 50 year old woman; no foul play suspected

A body was discovered inside a residence in Cedartown early Wednesday morning. According to Cedartown Police, 50 year old Myra Dave was discovered deceased in her home on Erwin Street at approximately 6:45 Wednesday morning. Cedartown Assistant Police Chief Jamie Newsome said that when Dave failed to report to work that morning, a couple of her co-workers went to her house to check on her. When Dave did not open the door, firefighters were called to forcefully enter the residence. When entry was made, Cedartown Police Chief Henry King discovered the body. Due to the fact that Dave was alone at the time, her body was sent off to the GBI Crime Lab for a autopsy. Newsome said that while he doesn’t believe that foul play was involved, the GBI was contacted due to the uncertainty of the circumstances. The Cedartown Police Department is handling the investigation, with the assistance of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
