Body identified as Walking Willie

April 2, 2007

Brooks County - A body found in a wooded area in Brooks County Thursday has been identified as 68-year-old Willie Stevens, or Walking Willie.

A woods management crew found the body of Walking Willie Thursday afternoon, but decomposition made immediate identification difficult.

He had been reported missing Friday March 16th and was last seen getting into a red and white car a day earlier.

Stevens was known to hitch rides to perform odd jobs throughout the county but was found far from his usual route.

The cause of death is still being investigated, and Brooks County deputies continue their search for the red and white car.
