SOUTH FORSYTH -- A south Forsyth man has been detained in connection with a woman who was found dead in a south Forsyth home Monday evening after Forsyth County Sheriff's Office deputies received 911 calls about a suspicious person on Gallatin Way.
Around 6:42 p.m. March 6, deputies began receiving more than one 911 call about "a male acting suspiciously in [the Wyndam Park] subdivision," according to Cpl. Pete Sabella, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.
"When deputies arrived on scene, they encountered him at the [first crime scene]," Sabella said. "Based on that part of the investigation, that led us to his residence, where a deceased female was located."
The man was the detained as the Major Crimes Unit and other emergency personnel responded to the neighborhood near the Old Atlanta Road and McGinnis Ferry Road intersection.
Sabella said the road is not blocked.
How the deceased and the man who was detained know each other were not immediately clear, and neither were their ages.
Sabella said there is no remaining threat to the neighborhood.
