The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is treating it as a suspicious death.

“The young man did have a medical history and we’re hoping the death is contributed to his medical history, but right now we have to really treat it as a suspicious death because of the circumstances surrounding it,” said Bibb County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Miley.

The body will be sent to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
