Authorities in Georgia have identified the body found near a post office last week as 19-year-old Jacorey Harris who was reported missing by his family in January.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution police do not know how or when Harris died.
Harris was reported missing by his family Jan. 21 after leaving home about 10:15 a.m. and never returning. According to reports he is believed to have been spotted that evening at a local restaurant, but he wasn’t seen again until his body was discovered last Wednesday.
