arrival, officers discovered one deceased victim, Latorey Denise Harden, age 24, and one wounded victim, Pamela Harden, age 42, both of Vidalia.

The wounded victim was transported to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, where she later succumbed to her injuries. The victims were a mother and daughter. Eyewitnesses said that Latorey Harden’s toddler was also found next to the mother at the scene, unharmed, but covered in his mother’s blood. “My friend was holding the baby, and the baby had blood all over it,” the witness recounted. “We asked the police officer for some wipes. They gave me some, and I wiped off his head. Soon, a policewoman came over and started helping wipe off the baby.” The case is active and ongoing. Investigators are encouraging anyone who has information regarding the incident to contact the GBI Eastman office at 478-374-6988, or Vidalia Police Department at 912537-4123.
