Autopsy pending in unattended death case

Lamar coroner Jim Smith is awaiting autopsy and toxicology results from the state crime lab to determine the cause of death of 55-year-old Vickie Hawkins Perdue of Barnesville. Perdue was found dead in the floor beside a bed at the Piedmont Pines apartment complex off Gordon Road. She had moved into the apartment with a male subject after her previous residence burned. ’The male said she had been sick for a few days. He had offered her food the night before but she declined. The next morning he found her dead on the floor,’ Smith said. Toxicology results could take months, Smith added. Funeral services for Perdue were held Saturday at Williams Funeral Home.
