Cause of death unknown
Woman from newnan found dead in Florida
by Wes Mayer
A woman originally from Newnan was found dead in Florida Friday morning.
The woman, Cheri Amber Houston, 28, was found by a resident in Lake County, Fla., around 8:46 a.m., said Lt. John Herrell with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives have not given a cause of death, and it may be a couple weeks before toxicology reports are completed.
Herrell described Houston as a “transient over the last eight to 10 weeks.” He said she moved from Miami to Nashville, then to North Carolina, then to Atlanta and was heading down to the Orlando area. Lake County is in central Florida and borders Orange County, Fla., where Orlando is located.
Houston apparently also had a history of drug abuse, Herrell said.
Anyone with information on Houston have been asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff's Office at 352-343-2101 or the Central Florida CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.
