The body of 25-year-old Raquale Leigh Autry was found un­re­spon­sive by a fam­ily mem­ber in New­born Aug. 18, ac­cord­ing to a New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice (NCSO) re­port.

Found in­side the wood line be­hind a res­i­dence at 60 Spring Court, in New­born, Autry’s fa­ther-in-law found her and called 911.

Ac­cord­ing to the record­ing pro­vided by the Cov­ing­ton — New­ton County 911 Cen­ter, David Autry, Raquale Autry’s fa­ther-in law, told the dis­patcher Raquale ap­peared blue, but he had not checked for a pulse.

In the record­ing, David Autry said ear­lier that day Raquale Autry had vi­o­lated a tem­po­rary pro­tec­tive order (TPO) and her mother called con­cerned so he went out to look for her. “I think she com­mit­ted sui­cide,” he told the dis­patcher, ac­cord­ing to the record­ing. He added that he did not see any gun­shot wounds, but Raquael Autry ap­peared “blue.”

David Autry said he was “about 100 yards or so” be­hind his house and fam­ily mem­bers were in­side the house, ac­cord­ing to the record­ing.

New­ton County Coroner Tom- my Davis said the cause and man­ner of death have not been de­ter­mined yet. He is await­ing au­topsy re­sults from the Ge­or­gia Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tions (GBI) med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s of­fice. Davis said re­sults could take up to 90 days.
