Human Remains Found; Dog in Back of Truck Dies; City of East Cobb Proposed

Check out these Patch headlines from communities not far from Roswell.

 - Lawrenceville Patch

Investigators now know more about the  in unincorporated Lawrenceville. However, they still do not know who she is. On Sunday, neighbors found human remains in a wooded area behind 1414 Azalea Drive. Police are treating this case as a "suspicious death."

Initial examinations determined the body was that of a black woman. The Medical Examiner was able to narrow the age range of the 19 to 22. They also revealed the woman was between 5'8" and 6'0" tall. 

The victim was found wearing a T-shirt from a memorial function for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 2008 and a red Smoke Rise brand jacket in a size large.

 - Cartersville Patch

 arrested a Savannah man whose dog was treated for exhaustion and low glucose levels and later died.

Authorities responded to  after they received a complaint the man was driving a U-haul through Cartersville with his Cocker Spaniel-mix in the back of the moving truck, according to a news release.

When police arrived, the dog was lying next to the truck in the parking lot in apparent physical distress and a concerned citizen was pouring water on the dog to help cool it down.

Jerry Mason, 50, of Savannah, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. He was traveling from Savannah to Kentucky, he told police.

 - East Cobb Patch

Imagine if you will: Johnson Ferry Road becoming the official heartbeat of a true City of East Cobb. Imagine once again a real East Cobb City Hall, most likely in that corridor – no, not  – where citizens could pay for municipally-provided services and keep tabs on their mayor and city council.

And finally, imagine East Cobb police and fire departments providing community-focused public safety protection, instead of being part of larger, more sprawling county forces that may be understaffed. 

This is the City of East Cobb that Bill Byrne wants you to imagine. Or something like it. The Cobb Commission Chairman candidate unveiled a proposal Wednesday that would do just that, if East Cobb citizens fancy it.
