Coroner: Wife of decapitated Georgia man was killed, dumped in lake

An 87-year-old Georgia woman, who was found dead in Lake Oconee 10 days after the discovery of her husband&;s headless body, appears to have been killed before being dumped in the lake. It&;s the latest twist in a grisly case that has baffled authorities. Shirley Dermond did not drown but rather died from a "blunt impact injury to the head," Putnam County Coroner Gary McElhenney said Saturday. The coroner&;s finding came a day after authorities pulled Dermond&;s body from the lake about 80 miles east of Atlanta. McElhenney did not offer any further details about what might have been used to kill her before she was placed in the water or whether she suffered any additional trauma. The decapitated body of her husband, 88-year-old Russell Dermond, was discovered May 6 in the garage of the couple&;s million-dollar waterfront home after friends went to check on them.
