Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton identified the deceased as Evan Hill, 25, of Middlebrook Drive, and said authorities have "several suspicions" as to Hill's cause of death.
Guyton said he expects the results of an autopsy, including the cause of death, in about 6 months. His office is not conducting an investigation.
Bartow County authorities are investigating the death of a 25-year-old man found outside, partially clothed.
Sheriff Clark Millsap said in a news release that at 11:02 this morning, deputies and emergency medical personnel responded to 47 Middlebrook Drive in response to a possible death.
They found the deceased man "outside partially clothed," but at this time, investigators don't expect foul play. The cause of death is not known.
Millsap said further investigation will rely on results from a medical examiner's report and BCSO has not released the man's name has, pending verification of the notification of next of kin.
