West Allis, WI - Asa George, 34, apparently died days before September 6, when police found her decomposing body at her home. Her body was discovered in a bath tub full of water at her residence, 2300 block of S. 58th St. just before 11:00 a.m. on Friday after they went to check on her welfare. Her father had tried to contact George for four days before her aunt on Friday called police to check on her niece's welfare, according to the Milwaukee Medical Examiner's Office preliminary report obtained by media outlets, including CBS 58.
Her decomposing body has not been positively identified by the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office. George's death is still under investigation, but the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office has sealed the case and investigation pending the outcome of the autopsy results.
George's brother confirmed her passing in his Facebook account on Saturday evening.
George was a former morning CBS 58 anchor woman who departed from WDJT-TV/Weigel Broadcasting in February 2011 after working for one year. She then did freelance news reporting work for Fox 6 News.
George is originally from Madison, but grew up in Houston, Texas.
In brief, CBS 58/Weigel Broadcasting is facing several discrimination bias claims within a month from staff members and yesterday, a photojournalist abruptly quit after working only seven months at CBS 58.
The photojournalist in his Facebook account posted that as of yesterday, he no longer worked at WDJT-TV. Hispanic News Network U.S.A. is currently following the developing events at CBS 58 and Weigel Broadcasting.
