Coroner IDs man found dead in canal under bridge

The man whose body was found Sunday in a canal under the Calhoun Expressway overpass was 49-year-old Michael Glen Sterns, according to the Richmond County Coroner's Office. 

Sterns, of Wapakoneta, Ohio, was pronounced dead at the scene around 2 p.m. Sunday, Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen said. 

Richmond County deputies said they received a call around 1:30 p.m. about a body at Telfair Street under the Calhoun Expressway overpass.

Bowen said it appears Sterns was homeless and was living under a bridge near the canal. 

Richmond County Sheriff's Office investigators said they don't believe foul play is involved, but it has not been ruled out.
