(CBS/AP) JASPER, Ga. - A suspect has been jailed and others face possible charges after police say a woman's body was left outside a mobile home in Jasper after she died of an apparent asthma attack.

According to authorities, 20-year-old Taylor Smith died after an apparent asthma attack she experienced while with friends. Pickens County sheriff's deputies say the friends dropped her  body off along Robin Lane after trying to revive her with a cold shower.

Deputies found the body near a trailer just down the road from the county jail.

WSB-TV reports someone had called 911, which allowed authorities to track down suspects in the case. One of them, 38-year-old Marty Gaddis, faces charges that include concealing a death, abandonment of a body, tampering with evidence as well as drug and reckless conduct charges.

It wasn't known early Tuesday whether Gaddis has an attorney.
