Body Found in Walton County Still Unidentified

There's still no positive identification of a body found in Northern Walton County last week.

The deceased is a black male found on Pittman Road, outside of Paxton.

Authorities say there is no evidence of foul play and the state medical examiner's office is involved in the investigation.

Walton County Sheriff's officials say the person may be that of a man who ran off into the woods in December.

A subsequent search did not turn up the individual.

Investigators reportedly have several leads into a possible identity, but nothing has been made public at this time.
