A man found dead inside an abandoned Houston Avenue house has been identified, but the public’s help is needed to help locate his family.
Carlton Whitfield, 50, was found dead inside a vacant house at 4340 Houston Ave. on Aug. 4, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.
Whitfield’s body was difficult to identify because it was in the house for a couple of weeks. Evidence of a recent knee surgery matched Whitfield’s medical records, Jones said.
Autopsy results are pending toxicology tests.
