UPDATE: Woman's Body Identified

A passer-by in Wilson made a deadly discovery Tuesday night.

Major John Farmer with the Wilson County Sheriff's Office says a passer-by called authorities at 10:10 p.m. Tuesday. A body was found on Green Pond Rd., between U.S. 264 and Countryside Rd. near Sims in western Wilson County.

The victim has now been identified as Roberta Ann Lindsey Fulghum. Deputies say she was 45-years-old and they used a fingerprint comparison to identify her body.

Maj. Farmer says her death is being treated as a homicide and that all available detectives are working on the case.

Maj. Farmer also says the woman has been dead for a "period of time." One clue perhaps to the time line detectives are working with is the request that anyone who may have seen something suspicious in that area in the last five days come forward to lawmen.
