Autopsy leaves questions about man found dead on street in Macon

An autopsy could not pinpoint the cause of death for a man whose body was discovered on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard near Elm Street about 5 a.m. Tuesday, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Blood and tissue samples have been sent off for testing. Results are expected in six to eight weeks, Jones said.

The man has been identified as Shedrick Evans, 38, of Pebble Street, Jones said.He said there was no sign of obvious foul play in the case.

“He looked like he was just walking down the sidewalk and fell over dead,” Jones said.
