The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a woman found floating in a pond at an apartment complex in Acworth Thursday, police said.

A resident notified authorities when they saw the body of an elderly white woman floating in the pond inside the apartment complex off Bells Ferry Road on Thursday afternoon, said Lt. Jay Baker, spokesman for the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.

Baker said the woman was identified as Betty West, 74, of Acworth.

While the cause of death is still under investigation, Baker said “nobody would be swimming in the lake this time of year.”
