Marietta woman found dead pinned under car door

- A Marietta woman is dead and Cobb County Police say a family car may be to blame.

Officers say a runner found 59-year-old Glenda Boyd pinned under the driver side’s door and her driveway Sunday morning. Neighbors say the car belonged to her son. She was driving it while he was in the hospital because of complications with diabetes.

"He's tore up. To find out his mother has died in such a tragic way, it's awful,” said neighbor Robert Climer.

Boyd’s car still sits in the driveway of her home. Climer said he saw the son’s black Chrysler 300 around 9 on Sunday morning.

"I noticed the car in the driveway with the door open which was unusual when I went to get the paper Sunday morning and I didn't really investigate it I thought that was a little odd,” Climer said.

Cobb County Police report a runner saw Boyd on the ground a couple of hours later at 11 a.m. The runner called 911, but it was too late.

Neighbors say the roads and sidewalks were thick with snow and ice. The ones we spoke to all think Boyd probably slipped on the ice.

Officers confirm the car was not in park when they found her, but they don’t know what caused her death, or how she got under the car door.

Police say the family has been too upset to give a statement.
