Body of Missing Monroe Man Found

For the past month, his family in Monroe never lost hope.

They prayed and publicized the fact that went missing one Sunday after church on a trip to Athens to look at a possible business investment. They offered $10,000 for information leading to finding him.

On Monday, authorities found the body of the 25-year-old assistant manager in Oglethorpe County, according to a story in the Athens Banner-Herald.

Jim Fullington, who's the head of the GBI's Athens field office, told the newspaper the death is a probable homicide. A local resident found the man's decomposing body in an abandoned well in Oglethorpe County's Sandy Cross community.

That's only a few miles from the Smithonia community, where authorities tracked his cell phone after he was reported missing, the Athens Banner-Herald story says.
