LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

Inspectors from Richmond County Code Enforcement found a man’s body during an inspection on Wednesday. According to the county coroner, the man had been dead for at least one month. His name is being withheld while investigators notify his family.

The home is along Mundy Road off Old Louisville Road. Inspectors were called there for a possible code violation.

Because of the advance stage of decomposition and the strange circumstances, the Richmond County Coroner wants to rule out foul play. There will be an autopsy on Thursday morning at Newberry Pathology.
