Saturday December 27

LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A teenager was found dead Saturday inside a Lee County home investigators are working to find out how he died.

Both Lee County Sheriff's deputies and the GBI responded to the home on Thundering Springs Road, where the body was found just after noon Saturday.

Saturday officials were tight lipped about the investigation.

It was an emotional day for family and friends who showed up to the home where the body of an 18-year-old man was found.

A GBI agent talked to the victims brother and a friend about the case, but officials are not saying much as far as the investigation goes.

"Basically all we know is that we have a death of a young white male," said Charles N. Durham, GBI Special Agent.

The coroner would not go on camera Saturday but did say there were no wounds to the body.

We asked if drugs were involved.

"It's still under investigation, we still don't know as of yet as to what was the cause of death," said Durham.

The house at 159 Thundering Springs Road is like many others in the area, it sits back from the road covered by a veil of shrubs and trees.

Neighbors tell us a number of people were in the back yard of the residence sometime this morning before officials were dispatched.

Saturday night officials finally got the warrant they needed to enter the home and conduct the investigation they're saying little about.

"That's about all I can say at this time is that it's under investigation and the crime scene tech is processing the scene," said Durham.

The GBI is not releasing the man's name at this time, nor are they saying if he was a resident there.

His body will be sent to the crime lab in Atlanta for an autopsy.
