Body found in west Macon apartments


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A body was found at the Brookhaven Apartments near Presidential Parkway in Macon.

A groundskeeper found 46-year-old Marschon Prater early Tuesday morning. The front door of his town home was open. Initially his car was missing, but deputies found it later.

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.
