The investigation continues into a Wilkes County, Georgia, murder that seasoned investigators are calling “bizarre.”
Investigators from the GBI, DNR and the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office were back at the crime scene Wednesday, searching for clues.
Mike Ayers with the GBI says, “It is rather bizarre, but right now, truthfully, we have a lot more questions than we have answers.”
A Blairsville, Ga., man went hunting in Wilkes County with a friend this past weekend. Investigators got a call Saturday night that Jeffery Sean Gebhardt was lost in the woods.
A search team scoured the area, and a helicopter found his body early Sunday morning. Investigators say they found the body in a remote, marshy area.
“Every death investigation takes on a life of its own, but this one has some unique characteristics that you just don’t see everyday,” Ayers said.
Since no one is in custody yet, investigators aren’t releasing a lot of facts in the case. They will only say it was murder with odd circumstances, and they are still looking for the killer.
