College student found dead inside Lee County home

November 10, 2007

Lee County -- We have learned the identity of a 21-year-old Georgia Southwestern student found dead inside his family's home.

It was shortly after 7 a.m. this morning when deputies discovered the body of Jarrod Wills inside the home at 485 Fussel Road.

GBI investigators were at that address throughout the morning interviewing neighbors and friends of the college student whose exact cause of death is still unknown.

"Initially our officers went to the location on a welfare check about a subject that lived in the house. Upon arrival, we found a deceased person and that's when the investigation began," said Capt. Miles O'Quinn, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

GBI Agent Trebor Randall said "Right now, we're just following up leads and talking with witnesses to try and find out what happened, and what took place. Until the autopsy report is back, we will not even know what the cause of death was."

We're told Wills was a Lee County resident and that he had attended Lee County High School before entering college.

His body has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. Right now the GBI is treating the case as a death investigation.
