DALLAS, Ga. -- Police are trying to identify a dead man found decomposing behind a Paulding County home on Friday.
But the investigation just took an unusual turn.
The call came in around 1:19 pm to Paulding County E-911 in reference to a possible body being located in the 3300 block of Ridge Road.
Upon arrival deputies confirmed that there was in fact a deceased person in the wooded area behind the home.
The complainant told deputies that he had been smelling something "dead" behind his residence for a few days.
He found the body when he went to investigate the smell.
The body was so decomposed that investigators can only confirm that it is male.
