Woman found slain

MOULTRIE — A woman’s body was found at a Moultrie mobile home park Friday night, victim of an apparent homicide.

Colquitt County Coroner Verlyn Brock said the body of 57-year-old Trejo Dominga was found in a driveway along the back of Regency Village, a mobile home park off Quitman Highway.

Brock said the body will be taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab for autopsy either Monday or Tuesday, depending on the lab’s holiday schedule.

Brock and a Moultrie police officer associated with the investigation both deferred any other questions to the GBI investigator, who could not be reached by telephone on Saturday.

If Dominga’s death is homicide as is believed, it would be the fifth homicide investigation this year in Colquitt County. Other such incidents include:

• The body of Anthony Tyshawn Keith, 27, was found in the 300 block of Fifth Street Southwest March 29. He had been shot multiple times.

• Robert Aldridge, 216 N. Ticknor Road, was run over by a vehicle in Doerun. Craig Lee Adams was charged with murder and other offenses in connection with his death.

• Johnny Earl Crawford, 54, was shot to death June 22. His housemate, Gina Thompson, 43, has been charged in the case.

• The body of Stanley Alderman, 51, was found in a parking lot at First Street and Second Avenue Northwest Sept. 1. Police said at the time they were treating his death as a homicide, but the investigation has not been resolved yet.
