Officials from the Pike County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) responded to the location at about 4:30 p.m. Upon arriving, deputies located 60-year-old Jimmie Burousas Jr., the son of former Lamar County Chief Magistrate Judge Jimmie Burousas Sr., sitting in his vehicle in the driveway, deceased.
Jimmie Burousas’ cause of death has not yet been determined, as authorities are awaiting autopsy results from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab.
Upon further investigation, deputies discovered the deceased man’s wife, Teresa M. Burousas, injured at the scene. She was lying on the ground outside the residence, suffering from injuries received during the attack.
Teresa Burousas was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The PCSO reported Thursday that she had been treated and released from the hospital.
Investigators are following up on “several leads” in the case.
The suspects are believed to be a black male, approximately 6 feet, 3 inches, to 6 feet, 4 inches tall with a large build. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black shirt.
The second suspect is a white male with blue eyes, approximately 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing approximately 150 to 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt with a white design.
The PCSO said the suspects may possibly be traveling in a white Pontiac Trans Am.
“We believe this to be an isolated incident and that the victims had some connection or knowledge of the suspects,” said Maj. David Neal, of the PCSO Criminal Investigation Division (CID).
Officials say anyone with information in this case should contact the Pike County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at 770-567-8431.
