State and local agents investigate after a body was found inside a home on Roberts Street on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 20, 2020, in Monroe, Ga.

MONROE, Ga. — Police and state investigators were on the scene late Sunday afternoon after a man found a worker dead inside a home that was being renovated on Roberts Street.

The owner found the 67-year-old man dead and called police at about 1:30.

The man who found the victim told The Tribune he wasn't sure what caused the death, but did see blood. The man declined to identify himself to the newspaper but was at the scene as police, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Walton County coroner's office worked.

That home is in the 500 block of Roberts Street.

Officer Shannon Haynes said police called in the GBI to help.

The victim's name had not been released as of late Sunday afternoon.
