Missing man found dead

January 10, 2005

Lowndes County - A South Georgia man who's been missing for almost three months was found dead Tuesday.

Forty-one year old Marvin Griffin of Ray City was reported missing back in October. Tuesday, he was found lying in his truck in some woods off Lightsey Road in Lowndes County.

Investigators say there were no obvious signs of foul play, and it could be several weeks before they know how he died. "The body will go to the crime lab, right now you can't tell because of a lot of decomposition, so it will take forensics to tell us exactly what the cause of death was," said Sheriff Ashley Paulk.

Griffin's body was found by two men who were checking on the land for the property owner.
