Body in Burning Car Identified as that of Chatham Woman, Case Ruled as Homicide

Captain Wayne Davis with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed the identity of the body found in the burning car near woods just below Mitchell Road and Irisburg Road Sunday as that of 74 year-old Juanita Dalton of 680 Shellhorse Road in Chatham. The vehicle her body was in was also hers. Davis said the autopsy has confirmed the death was a homicide, but the release did not provide any details. The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who may have been traveling the Irisburg Road between 5 and 5:30 PM Sunday and saw someone walking or a vehicle along the side of the road, or anyone with any information regarding Dalton traveling in the Chatham, Danville, and Martinsville area to call them.
