A dead body was discovered Sunday in the tall grass of the median of Ocmulgee East Boulevard, apparently the victim of a hit-and-run driver.
Otis Huston, 62, of Buffalo City, N.Y., had been reported missing by his family on June 4, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones. His body was badly decomposed but appeared to be a victim of a car accident.
Crime scene investigators from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office were working at the scene at 9 p.m. Bibb Sheriff’s Lt. George Meadows said debris from a vehicle was found nearby.
The body was found near the intersection of Ocmulgee East Boulevard and Dillard Drive, close to the Geico office complex.
