Body found hanging from a tree


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called to investigate after a body was found hanging from a tree in Quitman, GA.

The body was found Tuesday morning at 903 West Hill St. It was discovered after neighbors reported a foul odor in the area and called Quitman Police.

GBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Turner said the body was too decomposed to identify. It was believed to be a man because of the clothes on the body.

An autopsy was scheduled and officials will work to identify the body through dental records.
