Deputies responded to an address on Trade Mill Court and spoke with Green’s daughter, Barbara Green, who stated that Gwendolyn Green was found between an air conditioner and the back stair case.

Officers reported that other details given to them by Barbara Green were not consistent. The incident report states that Barbara Green appeared drunk and was possibly not well.
