Body found at Tift County business

August 28, 2006

Tift County-  A man was found dead behind a Tift County business Monday morning. 

The man, who's name we don't know, was found on his back in some grass near a storage shed behind MaTech.  MaTech employee Felix Turner first found a wallet on back patio, then spotted the dead man. 

"As soon as I glimpsed, and I knew I had been out here earlier and I was just looking around, and I just went back in the shop and I called, I didn't try to investigate or anything," said Felix Turner, part time MaTech Machinist. 

MaTech is in the county, near the Pilot Truck stop. The Tift County Sheriff's office sent the body to the crime lab in Atlanta for an autopsy and positive identification.
