Man found dead in Jesup home

JESUP, GA (WTOC) -

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide in Jesup.

Investigators say the case started when a man went to pick up his cousin for work.

The man went into the house in the Chapman Plantation area in Jesup and found Eddie Pearson III, 35, shot to death.

Pearson had been working at a landscaping company since moving to Jesup in April. The crime leaves loved ones, neighbors and investigators wondering who would kill someone who hadn't been living there that long.

"I'd ride by and see him sitting on the porch. I don't think he has been here more than a month or two. Not long," said Lamar McReady, neighbor.

Sheriff John Carter says they are looking for leads in Jesup and near his former home in Virginia.

"It is not often you have what we call a who done it, where we have no idea. Often times we have some suspects going in," said John Carter, Wayne County Sheriff.
