Gordon County authorities are investigating the death of a local man whose remains were found in a field from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to Gordon County Deputy Coroner Bo Nicholson the unidentified male, believed to be in his 20’s, was discovered by his landlord about 11:15 am Monday. Nicholson pronounced him dead at the scene at 12:01 pm. The body was located about two miles from the Gordon-Floyd county line.

Nicholson says no foul play is suspected in the case, though the body has been sent to the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur for an autopsy. Local officials say the investigation is ongoing.
