At the time, authorities were unable to determine the cause of death. The boyfriend, however, became a suspect as more information was gathered in the case.
An autopsy conducted Monday at the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office then found tell-tale signs of physical abuse.
Bibb County Sheriff’s investigators were notified of the results from the examination, and a warrant was issued for Dixon’s arrest.
The investigation continues.
Sheriff’s officials are urging anyone with information about the case to call 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
