ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   Albany Police are releasing little information about a badly decomposed body found inside a car by a drainage ditch in East Albany Thursday.

We know the victim was a 57-year-old white man from the Jacksonville, Florida area. So far, officials are not releasing his name.

Investigators are still trying to determine how long the body had been behind a fence on city property on Broadway Court near Clark Avenue. The body was found inside a Ford SUV by a Georgia Department of Natural Resources Ranger on patrol.

The body was sent to Macon's crime lab for autopsy, but no obvious signs of a cause of death were found in the preliminary examination.

Police continue to investigate the case as a homicide.
