Man killed in Tifton

August 12, 2007

Tifton--  The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into the death of a Tifton man. Tifton authorities won't say much about the death.

Tift County Coroner Michael Beaumont says the body of 41-year-old Charles Raburn was found at his home at about 3:30 Saturday morning. He won't say how he died but it's believed Raburn was stabbed to death.

Family members tell WALB-TV that he was stabbed by an ex-girlfriend who was recently put out of the home at 347 Highway 125 South.  This hasn't been confirmed by law enforcement. They say the death is still under investigation by the Tift County Sheriff's Office and the GBI.

Raburn's body will be shipped to the Crime Lab in Atlanta for an autopsy Monday.
