Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones is asking for the publics help in identifying the remains of a man who was found dead Saturday afternoon in an abandoned house at 4340 Houston Ave.
Jones said the body has been decomposing for at least a couple of weeks, making it impossible to determine the mans age, race or cause of death. An autopsy will be performed Monday, Jones said.
Jones said neighbors think the victims name was C.W. Whitfield or Winfield.
Given the current high temperatures, Jones said its important for people to check upon their neighbors, especially elderly ones.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the coroners office at (478) 621-6314.
