Body found in McDuffie County Wednesday morning


McDuffie County, Ga (WJBF) – The McDuffie County Coroner confirms the body found on Gus Street in the early hours of August fourteenth is 42-year-old Nico Moore.

Details are limited at this time but those who live in the Gus Street area say it’s very unusual that Moore was found dead in their quiet neighborhood.

Moore’s son, who is a student at Columbus State, said he dropped everything as soon as he heard the news of his dad’s passing. Then drove straight to Thomson. The son also says that he had a great father and that his dad loved the whole family.

“It’s crazy because basically 365 days ago on this same day my grandfather passed away and he was there for me so for that to happen again this year, I can’t even explain it right now,” he said.

Authorities do not expect foul play in regards to Moore’s death. His body is being sent to the GBI lab for an autopsy.
