Brandon woman drowns in pool

BRANDON, MS (WLBT) - A Brandon woman drowned in her home swimming pool Sunday.

Just after 4:00 in the afternoon, Brandon police, AMR and Brandon Fire were called to the home in the 300 block of Mary Ann Drive at the corner of East Jasper Street. 

Officers found the body of Amy Goodwin, 43, in her backyard swimming pool. Police Chief Ken McBroom says she may have died the previous night.

"Her mother had tried to call her and couldn't get her, so she drove over here, and that's where she had found her in the pool," McBroom said. "We received a call from her mother.  She said she had found her daughter, Amy Goodwin, in the pool and all signs appear she had drowned."

Rankin County Coroner Jimmy Roberts expects an autopsy to be performed Monday.

Goodwin leaves behind two children.
