Dodge County authorities are trying to identify a man’s body found Monday night in a local lake off Reedy Branch Road.
A fisherman on an adjacent pond discovered the partially-clothed corpse in the water at about 7 p.m., said Capt. Tony Winborn of the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.
A Hispanic male was reported missing Saturday, but investigators have yet to positively identify the body or determine the cause of death, Winborn said. “The body was in such a bad state we couldn’t determine how he died,” said Winborn, who said foul play is not suspected at this point in the investigation.
An autopsy will be performed at the GBI Crime Lab and state agents are assisting in the investigation.
