Police awaiting autopsy results for woman found dead in Cary pond

Posted January 21, 2015

— Police are awaiting preliminary results of an autopsy to determine how a 19-year-old died after her body was discovered Tuesday afternoon in a Cary pond.

Residents in the Amberly neighborhood say a 12-year-old playing near a pond off Brookhill Way discovered the body of Aliza Wanda Webb around 4:30 p.m.

Webb, a student at Panther Creek High School, lived in the area.

Family members said she had been missing since Jan. 10, had not contacted any friends and had not been active on any of her social media accounts.

"Everyone is just in shock. From my understanding, she was a good student," said neighbor Jason Scott. "Everyone is just trying to cope with the whole situation right now."

Scott said Webb would often care for other children in the neighborhood.

"She was a pleasant girl, nothing negative about her," he said. "Nobody had anything to say about her at all."

Cary police have said that they don't suspect foul play in Webb's death but are waiting on the autopsy results, which could be available as early as Wednesday.
