Albany -- Who is the man struck and killed by an S.U.V. over the weekend on Leary Road? Dougherty County Police hope his fingerprints can answer that question.

A man walking on Leary Road near Mud Creek Road at 8:30 Saturday night was struck by a Ford Explorer driven by Benny Williams of Arlington. Williams was headed east and passing another car when he struck the man. Williams has not been charged with any crime. Because the dead man had no identification and was walking in such an isolated area, Investigators think he was homeless.

Dougherty County Police Assistant Chief Jeremy French said "What we have done is take postmortem prints taken. Captain Windom of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office and AFIS is trying to get a hit on those prints so that we can get a hit on those prints, so that we can get his identity."

 The man is 5-foot-9, 145 pounds, with red hair and a red-gray beard. Approximately 45 years old, he was wearing a blue mechanics style jumpsuit and brown work boots. If you have any information, call the Dougherty County Police.
