McDuffie County Sheriff's deputies spent Tuesday afternoon and evening at the scene of what they believe to be a murder off of Whiteoak Campground Road.
Police we're sent out there around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon after someone called 911 saying they found a body.
Sheriff's deputies came out and found an elderly man dead in his drive way. The GBI was called in to help in the investigation, something deputies say is pretty standard in McDuffie County.
Investigators aren't releasing much information, including the victims name, but they do say they have reason to believe foul play was involved.
GBI Special Agent in Charge Mike Ayers tells News Channel Six, "Investigators and agents are now working leads and interviewing people in the area as well as around downtown Thomson. At this point this is still very early on in the investigation and we don't have anything to release as far as suspects or anything like that."
