Madison County Sheriff Kip Thomas told the Athens Banner-Herald that Jaymar Morrison was reported missing Friday and sheriff's deputies found him dead that evening in the pasture behind his home.
Thomas said Morrison had been shot twice, once in the head and once in the chest.
His body appeared to have been in the field for just a few hours said Thomas.
Morrison's truck had apparently been stolen.
