Teresa Burousas is the daughter of Pike County commission chairman Doug Mangham. She is expected to recover. Pike sheriff Jimmie Thomas said his office was called to the scene at 4:30 p.m. and Mr. Burousas was dead in his vehicle at the end of the driveway. Mrs. Burousas was found in her yard where she was apparently working. She and her dogs were reportedly attacked with a tire iron and hammer. Sheriff Thomas said information given his investigators by Teresa Burousas and others led to a lookout for two men who may be driving a late 90s model white Pontiac Trans Am. One is a black male about six feet tall with a large build who was wearing blue jeans and a black t-shirt. The other is a white male, 5-8 to 5-10 and weighing 150 to 170 pounds. He has blue eyes and was wearing a black t-shirt with a white graphic design on the front. If you have any information on these suspects, call investigators at 770.567.8431. Joining Pike investigators on the scene were personnel from the GBI crime lab and the Griffin circuit district attorneys office. Burousas’ body was taken to the state crime lab for autopsy. The attack took place less than a quarter mile from sheriff Thomas’ home.
