Bibb deputies serving an eviction notice in a mortgage foreclosure discovered a woman's body at about 11 a.m. today in Barrington Hall.
An autopsy will be performed on the body of the 53-year-old woman found on the floor of her bedroom at 610 Pineland Trail, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.
"She had been dead several days," Jones said. "There was no power in the house so it's very difficult to say how long she had been there."
Jones said he found no immediate evidence of suicide and authorities are trying to determine if any foul play was involved.
A Mercedes coupe was inside the garage of the stately home, he said.
The Bibb County Sheriff's Office erected crime scene tape around the house to protect possible evidence in the case.
