Statesboro Man Charged with Murder

Investigators have charged a Statesboro resident for killing a man seven months ago and dumping his body in the Candler County landfill. Bulloch County Sheriff's deputies arrested Eric Bragg for the death of Michael Scott Brown. A worker at the landfill discovered Brown's body last October, and investigators now believe he died near his home in Statesboro.

They say it took two autopsies to determine the victim had been shot.

"Certain issues couldn't be decided at that time due to the amount of time and condition of the body since the time the person had been deceased," explained Special Agent JB Edwards of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Brown remains in the Bulloch County jail. He's charged with murder and is awaiting a bond hearing.
