WASHINGTON - A Georgia sheriff says the death of a deer hunter in Wilkes County is considered a homicide.

Authorities say 35-year-old Jeffrey Sean Gebhardt's body was found by a Georgia State Patrol helicopter after he called the sheriff's office Saturday night, saying he was lost.

The Blairsville hunter apparently was found in an area of marsh and grass that is normally underwater but was exposed because of the low level of a lake.

Wilkes County Sheriff Mark Moore declined to release additional details.

What a tragedy.

Things like this make you want to hug the Wife, call the kids, and visit that crazy aunt that you've avoided for months.

Life is so short and uncertain.

Investigators calling murder of hunter in Wilkes Co.'bizarre'

News 12 at 6 o' clock / Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012

WILKES COUNTY, Ga.-- The investigation continues into a Wilkes County murder that seasoned investigators are calling "bizarre."

The body of a lost hunter was found in Holliday Park in Wilkes County early Sunday morning.

Investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Natural Resources and the Wilkes County Sheriff's Office were back at the crime scene Wednesday, searching for clues.

Investigators say even though it's a rural area, there were a lot of people around when the murder happened. They are asking anyone with information to contact the Wilkes County Sheriff's Office.

"It is rather bizarre, but right now, truthfully, we have a lot more questions than we have answers," said Mike Ayers with the GBI.

A Blairsville, Ga., man went hunting in Wilkes County with a friend this past weekend. Investigators got a call Saturday night that Jeffery Sean Gebhardt was lost in the woods.

A search team scoured the area, and a helicopter found his body early Sunday morning. Investigators say they found the body in a remote, marshy area.

Most definitely not a hunting accident. Read the article posted above, it was determined a homicide.

Re-read the headline: "Investigators calling murder of hunter in Wilkes Co.'bizarre'," then the article.

Who called it "murder?" The investigators called it "bizarre," not murder. The TV station apparently added that twist to make it more sensational.

Ive heard he was butchered up and this is the second time happened in that area but not heard over how long a Span the two took place.
Heard one GBI said it was the most gruesome thing he has ever seen.
