Teen's electrocution under investigation

June 5, 2008

Bainbridge-- Investigators are looking into the death of a Decatur county teen who may have been electrocuted.  

Friends of the victim told police 19-year-old Michael Weaver was at a house on Kelly Drive in Bainbridge helping tear down a shed when he was fatally shocked.

"Basically what we were told is that the person was electrocuted.  They were working on a shed that apparently had a hot wire on it and we are working on determining the cause of the electrocution," said Decatur County Sheriff's Investigator Julian Crowder.

Witnesses called 911 but then drove Weaver to the Hospital.  Doctors tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him.
