Autopsy finds drugs, alcohol in Appling man's body

An autopsy ruled that an Appling man found dead in his vehicle in May had drugs and alcohol in his system.

Police discovered the body of Dayton Counsell, 21, in a vehicle in the Washington Square parking lot May 10. Coroner Grover Tuten said Counsell had been there at least 48 hours before being discovered.

Tuten said an autopsy determined Counsell had methylone, methamphetamines and alcohol in his body. Methylone is a chemical found in synthetic drugs such as “bath salts” and “Spice.”
