Sheriff searching for possible video of 83-year-old Georgia woman's murderer

Deputies are asking for help in their search for the killer of an 83-year-old woman in her Carroll County home.

"We don't have a lot of viable leads right now," Investigator Ashey Hulsey said.

Officials say Barbara Gibson was shot to death at her home on the 1900 block of Burwell Mount Zion Road on Saturday between 5 and 9 p.m. 

Deputies told FOX 5 Gibson would call family members around 8 p.m. every night to check-in, and when she didn't call they got worried. 

"The family was going to go celebrate Mother's Day with her on Sunday. Instead of gathering for Mother's Day, unfortunately, they had to gather for more grim circumstances," Hulsey detailed.

Barbara Gibson was shot to death in her home.

A friend went to check on Gibson and found her dead.
