by Stefanie Tiso

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says an autopsy will be conducted today to determine whether the body found in Crawford County on Saturday is that of a missing Taylor County man.

22-year-old James Dudley Byers was last seen on December 19th with 21-year-old Cody Jackson.

The GBI says the truck was later found burning near the Crawford County landfill.

Jackson has been charged with murder.

He was already in the Crawford County jail on an unrelated probation violation when he was charged.
