 The Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia Bureau of Investigation are investigating the weekend death of a Washington, Ga., man.

The body of Fermer Corman “Butch” Dent, 63, was discovered by his wife about 7 p.m. Sunday at their home on Bellewood Drive near the Washington Country Club, said Mike Ayers, special agent in charge of the Thomson GBI office.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at the crime lab in Augusta, but neither Ayers nor Wilkes County Sheriff Mark Moore would comment on the cause of death or details from the case.
