State and county authorities are investigating a Thanksgiving Day homicide in McDuffie County.

Late Thursday afternoon, McDuf­fie County sheriff’s deputies had a remote stretch of Marshall Church Road blocked off for hours. County Coroner Rusha Mack was called to the scene along with a wrecker service.

A Georgia Bureau of Investig­ation crime scene specialist, deputies and the coroner were seen in a wooded area that runs parallel to Interstate 20. After more than an hour on the scene, the wrecker pulled out a late model Chevrolet truck from the woods.
