WAYCROSS, Ga. – A 31-year-old Georgia man is being sought in connection with the death of a 28-year-old man in a mobile home in Ware County, according to a report from the Waycross Journal-Herald.

Adam Noel was found dead Saturday at a home on Sawdust Trail.

Zeb Paul Murray is believed to have driven away from the mobile home just off the South Georgia Parkway east of Waycross in Noel's car.

Murray is described as 5 feet 9, about 160 pounds, with brown eyes and balding brown hair.

The car is a black 2007 Hyundai Tiburon with red interior and Georgia tag PBN 4235.

Ware County Sheriff Randy Royal told the Journal-Herald that detectives and Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents are working to learn background information on Murray.

“We are reconstructing the timeline leading up to the homicide,” Royal told the Journal-Herald. “And we are asking for help from the public. Anyone with information on the person of interest or about the homicide is asked to call the Ware County Sheriff’s Department at 287-4327, the GBI Douglas office at 389-4103 or call 911, or call the county’s tip line at 287-TIPS (8477) and remain completely anonymous.”

Detectives are waiting on an autopsy to determine Noel's cause of death, but it's believed he died from blunt force trauma.
