SHELBY COUNTY –The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide after a 37-year-old woman was found dead in her Highland Lakes home on Wednesday.
Connie Overstreet Woolweaver was found by her son when he returned to the gated community home from school at about 3:45 p.m. Neighbors called 911 and notified the sheriff’s office.
Woolweaver also had a young daughter.
In a statement released by Shelby County Sheriff John Samaniego, he said, “I do not believe there is a related threat to any of the residents in Highland Lakes or other local communities related to Ms. Woolweaver’s death. Her intentional death was the result of a calculated act and our investigators are making progress identifying her killer. This was a senseless act and I am very saddened for her family and friends.”
According to a friend who had known Woolweaver since elementary school, her husband preceded her in death.
Friends who attended Homewood High School with Woolweaver have set up a Go Fund Me page that says all money raised will be given to the stewardship of Connie’s family to use for the care of her two beautiful children Chandler Woolweaver and Kate Ashton.
No arrests have been made and no suspect or suspects have been named at this time. Officers have not commented on the cause of death.
