No charges filed in death of Hancock County woman

Prosecutors in Hancock County will not seek an indictment against sheriff's deputies in the July, 2022 death of Brianna Grier.

Greer, who was 28, suffered significant injuries when she fell from a patrol car while handcuffed after deputies failed to close the rear passenger side door. Greer died six days later.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Monday it has completed its investigation and turned the findings over to the Ocmulgee Circuit District Attorney who decided against bringing the case to a civil or criminal grand jury.
