Staff reportJanuary 20, 2014 

A 33-year-old man was found dead in his car in the Pleasant Hill neighborhood early Monday, but authorities don’t believe foul play was involved.

The man, who worked for Norfolk Southern Railroad, had been out with friends in the hours before he was found dead in his car on Pursley Street about 6 a.m. Monday, Jones said. The outing included alcohol consumption.

Macon-Bibb County Sheriff’s Office investigators taped off the scene early on as they checked the circumstances of the death.

“I think it’s going to be an accident,” Jones said.

The sheriff’s office identified the man as Marcus Gainey and said there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy will be performed, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
