October 23, 2002

Lee County-- The investigation into the death of a man found alongside a Lee County road is stalled.

Lee County investigators says they are waiting on more forensics tests from the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta. The case is still being considered a death investigation, but that could change when the results are known.

It's been ten days since the body of 40-year-old Charles Unruh was discovered along Kinchafoonee Creek Road. Family members say he left a barbecue October 13, 2002 with a friend. Unruh apparently got out of the car to walk the rest of the way home. His body was found about two and a half blocks away from the house where the barbecue was held.

Investigators say they are not entirely surprised it has taken this long to get all of the forensics tests back since the Crime Lab serves the entire state.
