Authorities: Woman, 39, was homicide victim

The woman discovered inside a trailer in Oak Hill Mobile Home Park by deputies Sunday was the victim of a homicide, according to the medical examiner.

Joylee Ann Brown, 39, Eastview Apartments in Statesboro, was identified as the victim, and her family members have been contacted. Further information will be released as the case progresses, Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Tuesday morning.
