    GA - Haralson Co., WhtMale 40-50, along highway, Mar'16 - Martin Prevost

    Saw this on news a few days ago and thought this would resolve quickly due to similarities with known missing near the area, but not as of yet. Looked for a post on him here, but didn't find one so posting in hopes someone can help identify this man.


    White Male

    40-50 years old

    5'10- 6' with Med-Heavy build

    Short dark colored hair

    Found about 7:00 pm on March 17, 2016 along U.S. Hwy 78 in Haralson County, GA about 2-3 miles from the AL State Line at Cleburne County.

    Authorities believe the man to have been deceased 2-3 days prior to discovery and suspect him to be a homicide victim killed elsewhere and dumped at the location.

    Has 3 tattoos: "Aurora" (on shoulder) and "Carney" and "To thine own self be true" on calf.

    The "Carney" tattoo has me thinking of the surname.

    "Carney" reminds me of the nickname for carnival and fair workers, who travel around setting up and running carnivals. That might be a stretch....but could also explain why he is unidentified as of yet. Perhaps he was traveling through the area.

    Total guess on my part.

    I read this yesterday on Al.com. Those were my thoughts, too.

    I swear I knew a guy named Robert carney in school. Not that I think this is him (we are in CA) but just pointing out that it is also a name.

    Him still being UID though lends to him actually being a carnival worker.

    I am a Carny, been working for carnivals for 13 years [I am a ticket seller]

    Yes, this man was in fact a Carny. I didn't know him personally, but he does look familiar and I'm sure I've met him in passing, before.

    But a lot of people on various FB carnival groups did know him. He has young children, this is very tragic.

    Of course, I do have special interest in this case and really am hoping an arrest can be made soon, or that something helps lead them towards a suspect!

    he went by the name "motor"

    I saw the pic of his tattoo and I hate to say but I THINK it looked like someone cut him up and slashed his throat

    I hope there is an arrest made.
