Valdosta - Police are trying to figure out how a man found dead in a cotton seed bay died.

Employees at Western Hay Company on Industrial Boulevard found 22-year old Rene Ramirez as they sifted through cotton seed Tuesday afternoon.

Ramirez worked the business. His family reported him missing when he didn't return home from work Sunday.

"Its uncertain how long he's been there, he went missing Sunday the 14th and the last time he was seen was in the break area of the company," said Lt. Bernard Robinson.

Investigators do not suspect foul play. They say Ramirez had no signs of trauma, and they won't know the cause of death until they get autopsy results.
