CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Cordele Police and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are now calling the death of a man inside his apartment a homicide. They're now looking for a man they call a person of interest in the case.

About 2:30 Monday afternoon, 43-year-old Clayton Bernard Carter's body was found on the floor of his apartment at 509-A West 14th Avenue. Police say he suffered a head injury.

They're now looking for 26-year-old Caesar Octavius Rogers Jr. to question in connection with the case. "We're interviewing a lot of witnesses around here and we had to go in and get a search warrant and now the agents are in there processing the scene and they've gone back out to begin doing more interviews," said Cordele Police Chief Dwayne Orrick.

Police say Carter lived with his girlfriend at the apartment. His body will be sent to the crime lab in Atlanta to determine the exact cause of death.

Rogers is black man, 5'9" and 161 pounds with short twists in his hair. He was last seen wearing a green shirt and a blue jean jacket. If you have information, call Cordele Police at 229-273-3102.
