Local and state authorities are investigating the death of a Midway man whose body was found Monday afternoon in Fleming beside a pickup outside a Freedman Grove Road residence.

The victim was identified Tuesday morning as James Caswell Jones, 62, of Midway. He had been shot, according to authorities.

Both the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia Bureau of Investigation are investigating Jones’ death.

"We’re treating this as a murder at this point," Liberty County Sheriff Steve Sikes said Monday night. "We’re doing a lot of inquiries right now, and anyone who saw anything at this scene here today that looked unusual to them, please give us a call."

Sikes said Tuesday that authorities were still investigating leads, but a search in the area for a weapon had come up empty.

Jones’ body was found shortly after 3:30 p.m. beside a blue GMC Serria pickup with Liberty County tags.

Anyone with information can call 912-876-2131.
