Wilkes authorities rule hunter's death a homicide

The death of a hunter whose body was found Sunday morning in Wilkes County has been ruled a homicide, Sheriff Mark Moore said.

Moore refused to release any other information on the death of 35-year-old Jeffrey Sean Gebhardt, whose body was found by the Georgia State Patrol helicopter after he called the sheriff’s office Saturday night saying he was lost.

Gebhardt was found in an area of marsh and grass that is normally underwater but was exposed because of the low lake level. The Blairsville, Ga., deer hunter’s death is under investigation by the sheriff’s office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
