ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A mystery in Albany, good samaritans showed up at a hospital with the body of a murder victim.

Police say they aren't sure how, where, or by whom 32-year old Reginald Richardson was killed, but they are questioning two people they call persons of interest.

Just before 2 Tuesday morning Police were called to Phoebe Putney hospital.

Police think Richardson may have been involved in a fight near a club in the 800 block of East Broad Avenue.

Investigators say they aren't even sure the exact cause of his death.

Richardson's body was sent to the G-B-I Crime Lab in Atlanta where an autopsy will be performed Wednesday.

Police say the two friends who brought Richardson to the hospital are being questioned.

Lt. James Williams of the Albany Police said "We do have two people of interest that we are talking with. And based on their statements we are trying to narrow it down to an exact location as well as more involvement in this case."

Albany Police are asking anyone with information in this murder to call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS, or the Albany Police at 431-2100.

Richardson's is the second murder in Albany this year.
