Human remains found in Columbia County wooded area

Body Found Columbia County

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF-TV) – The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the human remains of a man found in Harlem, Georgia.

The body was found Saturday by some boys who were walking in a wooded area near Leitner Mill Road and GR Tucker Road.

Investigators believe the remains had been there for about 5 years.

They say it could be a man who threatened suicide in the area several years ago.

The man apparently walked away from his home after a fight with his girlfriend, never to be heard from again.

The body has not been positively identified yet, but it will be sent to the GBI Crime Lab for forensics testing this week.

No foul play is suspected.
