Man shot, then set on fire

January 18, 2005

Lowndes County - Investigators are looking for someone who shot a man, then set him on fire.

Thirty-one year old Anthony Lamar Davis of Valdosta was found Sunday afternoon off Johnson Road Southeast near Lake Park. Police say he had been shot, then burned to conceal the death.

A group of young people riding 4-wheelers in the area discovered the body. "They saw smoke up in that area so they notified their parents, and the call came in from the parents," said Sheriff Ashley Paulk.

Investigators say they don't have any suspects or a motive in the murder.
