A man found dead Sunday in the Augusta Canal has been identified as a homeless man from Ohio.

Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen identified the victim as Michael Glen Sterns, 49, of Wapakoneta, Ohio. He was pronounced dead at the scene under the John C. Calhoun Expressway overpass about 2 p.m. Sunday.

The body is scheduled for an autopsy at the GBI Crime Lab today or Wednesday.

Bowen said it appears Sterns was homeless and was living under the bridge.
