Suspect charged with abandoning body on roadside in Pickens Co.

By The Associated Press
JASPER, Ga. (AP) One suspect has been jailed and others face possible charges after authorities say a woman's body was left outside a mobile home in Jasper when friends could not revived her.

Police say 20-year-old Taylor Smith died after an apparent asthma attack she experienced while with friends. Pickens County sheriff's deputies say the friends dropped her lifeless body off along Robin Lane. Deputies found the body near a trailer just down the road from the county jail.

WSB-TV reports someone had called 911, which allowed authorities to track down suspects in the case. One of them, 38-year-old Marty Gaddis, faces charges that include concealing a death, abandonment of a body, tampering with evidence as well as drug and reckless-conduct charges. It wasn't known early Tuesday whether Gaddis has an attorney.
