VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A man was found dead Monday at a body shop in Valdosta. Police suspect it's a homicide.

 

 

Police have not released the man's identity but they do know he's in his late 20s or early 30s.

Police were called to the Gallego's Paint and Body Shop off Lee Street Monday morning.

An employee called them after he found the man laying on a couch.

The family that owns the business gave the man permission to sleep outside the building under a covered area.

 

 

"He is somebody that is known to the family that owns the paint and body shop. We do know for sure he does not have a permanent residence," said Capt. Bobbi McGraw, Valdosta Police. "Sometimes he would stay overnight at that location."

 

 

The family offered to take him to dinner Friday night and he didn't show up.

His body has been sent to the GBI crime lab for an autopsy.
