The body of a white male, estimated to be in his late teens or early 20s, was discovered behind the store on the edge of a woodline around 3 p.m. It was found by a person driving on a cut-through road behind the building.

Authorities have sent the body  to the GBI crime lab in Atlanta for investigation and identification. Police say there was no wallet or ID with the body, so they are working to identify the victim.
