Death of Hispanic man is under investigation

THE GBI is assisting Cairo police in the death investigation of a Hispanic male found dead outside a vacant northeast Cairo residence.

A man was found dead outside a vacant rental home in northeast Cairo Monday, and Cairo Police are hoping someone will come forward to identify the victim. Officers are treating the death as suspicious and have sent the body to the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta for an autopsy in hopes of determining just how the man died.
Police are only saying that the body was that of an Hispanic adult male. Superficial wounds were visible, according to Cairo Police Investigator Wandell Asbell.
The owner of the rental property arrived at the home in the 1300 block of Ninth Avenue Northeast shortly before noon Monday. Asbell said the owner had planned to begin a remodeling project when he found the body on the ground outside the east end of the wood sided home.
There was no identification or driver’s license on the man’s body. Anyone with information that may help police identify the man is asked to call Cairo Police at (229)378-3096.
The GBI is assisting in the investigation.
