Staff Writer

Police are still investigating the cause of death of a 27-year-old mother of three that occurred last Thursday.
Grenada Police Chief Garrett Hartley said the investigation is ongoing regarding the death of Ashley Anthony at a home in the 20 block of Thomas Street.
“We’re deep into the investigation right now, and turning over leads,” Hartley said. “We have not determined a cause of death, but we’re awaiting results from the crime lab to assist us on that. It’s just not a lot we can say about that right now.”
Hartley said no arrest has been made in connection with the case.
When police arrived at the scene shortly after 1 a.m., they found Anthony unresponsive inside the home. Sources said there was an object around Anthony’s neck, but Hartley would not confirm that.
