Macon police investigating case of decomposed body

Macon police are investigating details of a badly decomposed body found in Macon on Thursday.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said the body of Lorenzo Braswell, 57, was discovered by a family member. Braswell had been dead about two weeks, Jones said.

The door of the residence in the 800 block of Lackey Drive was unlocked, he said. Officials won’t know if Braswell died of natural causes until an autopsy today at the Macon branch of the GBI crime lab.
