Lee County-- It's been more than a month since Charles Unruh's body was discovered on Kinchafoonee Creek Road in Lee County and investigators still don't know if he was murdered.

Flowers mark the spot where the 40-year-old Lee County man was found dead October 13th. Lee County investigators are still waiting on more forensics tests from the G.B.I. Crime Lab in Atlanta.

Lee County Chief Investigator Geoffrey Smith says, "95% of the decision has been made. This will give us the 5%, more or less that information or evidence is what we are waiting for."

Smith blames a backlog of cases at the G.B.I. for the delay. Charles Unruh left a barbecue that Saturday night at his sister's house with a friend. Shortly after midnight, his body was found just a few blocks away.
