"Milledgeville woman" booked for involuntary manslaughter over in Jones County
A 55-year-old woman who's no stranger to law enforcement was locked up at the county jail in Gray earlier this week and charged with one count each of involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
The investigation began after the Jones County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about "a deceased female in the driveway of her residence," according to a release from the JCSO. Added the release: "It quickly became clear to investigators that Potts had been deceased for several days. As a result of the investigation, Cynthia Foley, 55 of Milledgeville, has been arrested and charged with Involuntary Manslaughter and Reckless Conduct, for her failure to provide aid to Potts, who was in medical distress at the time of her death. The case is ongoing and additional arrests are expected. Anyone with information regarding this case should please contact the Jones County Sheriff’s Office at 478-986-3489.
Foley previously spent two years behind bars, including a stint at the women's state prison in Emanuel County, beginning in 2013 on a conviction for first degree forgery and possession of cocaine. Then, in 2019, Foley's probation officer spotted her walking up North Jefferson Street and knew that Foley had several active warrants. Deputies moved in and she was booked on those active warrants, while a new charge of possession of methamphetamine was added to her rap sheet.
