MACON COUNTY, GA (WALB) – GBI agents spent the weekend in Macon County searching for clues in a murder investigation.

Friday afternoon, a child aboard a school bus spotted what they believed was a body off State Road 128.

Minutes later the bus driver called police after finding the body of unidentified man on the side of the road.

"A passerby driving a school bus was told by one of the children that they thought they saw a body on the side of the road. Sometime later the individual had come back to the area and discovered that there was an actual body there." said GBI Asst. Special Agent Trebor Randle.

Agents say the man is white, about 6 feet tall and was wearing a light gray shirt with a rooster emblem on the front. A noticeable scar was found on the victim's thigh, indicating he may have recently undergone surgery.

Investigators say the man may have been killed elsewhere and brought to the location where the body was found.

Investigators haven't released a cause of death, but are treating the case as a homicide.
