Hotel death ruled natural
A woman found dead at the Covington Lodge late Monday night died from natural causes, according to Newton County Coroner Tommy Davis.
Covington Police were called to the lodge around 11 p.m. after 38-year-old Megan Staggers was found dead in one of the rooms. CPD Captain Ken Malcom initially called the death “suspicious,” and Staggers’ body was taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for an autopsy to determine her cause of death.
Davis said Tuesday that no foul play is suspected.
