A body was found in a bag — and possibly dismembered — outside of a Georgia home and police say the suspect is already in jail in South Carolina on unrelated charges.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the dead body, which may have been dismembered and placed in a plastic bag or bags, was found near a Hancock, Georgia, home around 7 p.m. June 4.
On June 5, officials said a vehicle Christopher Collin Demmon, 33, was riding in may be connected. That helped investigators connect Demmon to the killing in Hancock.
Police said their initial investigation revealed that Demmon and another person occasionally lived at the home.
Investigators have not revealed a motive for the alleged murder.
On the morning of June 6, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced they had a murder warrant for Demmon, who was being held by police in Aiken, South Carolina, on an unrelated charge.
Demmon was arrested in South Carolina on the night of June 1, on a disorderly conduct charge.
Officials said the identity of the body has not been confirmed yet, as it is pending an autopsy.
Authorities said Demmon served about three-and-a-half years behind bars for a string of crimes in the Tampa, Florida, area.
He was released from prison seven months ago, police said.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Demmon would be brought back to Georgia to face the murder charge.
