Roxboro woman’s body found in home
Police are awaiting autopsy results in the death of a 48-year-old Roxboro woman whose body was found last week in her home.
She was identified as Jacqueline Carmichael.
Roxboro Police Chief Todd Boycher said her body was found at 208 Front St., Apt. A.
Boycher said officers were called to the apartment about 11:15 a.m. Thursday and found that Carmichael wasn’t breathing. He said there were “no signs of trauma.”
Emergency medical personnel were called and performed CPR without success.
Preliminary evidence indicates Carmichael’s death might have been from a drug overdose, Boycher said. But he said the cause won’t be known until the autopsy is completed.
The chief said investigators have questioned several people, including Carmichael’s boyfriend, who called police about her death and was in the apartment when police arrived.
“We’ve contacted a lot of folks to see if there’s anything in her background that would lead to clues” about the cause of death, Boycher said. “She had appeared to be upbeat and in good health lately, according to witnesses.”
Boycher said Carmichael was a waitress at The Timberland, a Roxboro restaurant on North Madison Street.
