MACON, Ga. — A headless body was found behind a Bibb County Burger King Monday and investigators are working to determine the victim’s identity.
WGXA News reports that Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said the body was discovered by someone walking through the woods on Romeiser Drive, off of Eisenhower Parkway. Jones added that only skin and bones were found; the victim’s head has not been found.
Police say the body was found buried in dirt and will have to be removed carefully to “preserve evidence.”
“We’re going to need to get a shovel and dig around the body so we can get everything in the body bag so the GBI Crime Lab will have all of the body to process,” Jones said. “But we do know that this body has been here for a long time, that’s it.”
So far, there’s no word if investigators have an idea of who the victim was.
