Police seek Athens woman for questioning in baseball bat death

Athens-Clarke police are attempting to locate a woman for questioning in the death of a man who died early Monday from an injury inflicted by a baseball bat.

 

“She doesn’t have a warrant for murder, but she does have an outstanding warrant for something outside of this. We are looking to speak with her,” police spokesman Epifanio Rodriguez said Monday.

The victim was identified as 34-year-old Jovan Campbell.

The assault occurred during a domestic problem, according to Rodriguez.

Campbell knew the woman, but Rodriguez said police are not yet releasing the woman’s name.

The assault was reported at about 3:05 a.m. on Park Ridge Court in a neighborhood off Barnett Shoals Road, according to police.

Police had not released further details on the death as of Monday afternoon.
