    GA - Lowndes Co., WhtMale, Withlacoochee River near RR trestle, Jul'17 - Billy Rose

    Officials working to identify body found near train tracks

    LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. (WCTV) -- We're learning new details after a body was found near the Brooks-Lowndes County line on Thursday.
    The body was discovered on the east side of the Withlacoochee River, between the Highway 84 bridge and the train trestle.
    Authorities have not yet identified the body but say it appears to be a white male, small in stature, approximately 5'5" tall and 140 to 150 pounds.
    The crime lab is working on the identity and cause of death, but officials say they will probably not have those answers until next week.
    Sheriff Paulk says investigators suspect that the man went into the river near where his body was later found because socks and a shirt were also found at the scene.

    Monday, the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office says they've identified the man as 52-year-old Billy Rose, a Brooks County resident.

    His body was discovered by a conductor on a CSX train on the east side of the Withlacoochee River, between the Highway 84 bridge and the train trestle on July 13.

    LCSO says Rose is originally from Kentucky, but was living at a resident's house just across the County line and not far from where he was discovered.
    They're told the man walked off from the house in late June, but that it wasn't unusual, so friends never reported him missing.
    Cause of death is still unknown. Foul play is not suspected, but has not been ruled out.

    RIP Mr. Rose
