COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- Police want to talk to a woman who was seen with a murder victim shortly before he died.

Hazel Lunette Pinson is wanted for questioning in connection with the suspicious death.

The victim's body was found in a breezeway of Building 19 of the Lakeside Reserve Apartments on Lakemont Drive in College Park at around 12:50 a.m. Tuesday.

College Park Police Lt. Gerald Riser said investigators have not determined how the 55-year-old man died, but know "trauma" was involved. They are treating the case as a homicide.

The man's name has not been released. Neighbors said he lived with his girlfriend at the apartment complex.

The victim apparently had an argument with Pinson before he was found dead, according to College Park Police Detective Master Sergeant Jeff Hightower. Investigators now want to speak with her.

Pinson is 43 years old, black, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 160 pounds. She has short hair and may be wearing a wig. She has addresses in Atlanta, College Park and Coweta County, and was last seen in the Camp Creek Parkway area of East Point.

Hightower said Pinson is wanted in College Park on an aggravated assault charge in an unrelated case.

Anyone who sees Pinson or knows her whereabouts is asked to call 911 or College Park Police at 404-761-3131.
