Shelby County woman drowns in neighbor's pool

A Shelby County woman drowned Thursday morning in a neighbor’s swimming pool near Millington.

Shelby County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Shular said Madeline Lauderback, 33, had gone to the neighbor’s home in the 1400 block of Walsh Cove to visit friends and swim.

People at the house saw her sitting on the pool steps just before 1:00 a.m. Thursday.  Moments later, they found her unconscious in the deep end of the pool.

According to Shular, paramedics tried to revive Lauderback, but she died a short time later at Methodist Hospital North.

The Shelby County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of Lauderback’s death.
