43-year-old black man was found dead and hanging from a tree behind a home in Greensboro, Georgia, WAGA-TV reported.
A witness called authorities after finding Roosevelt Champion III’s hanged body around 11 a.m. local time. Champion reportedly did not live at the home in question.

nvestigators have not determined the cause of his death. According to WXIA-TV, Police Chief Ossie Mapp said that Champion was found hanging by “a type of plastic strap.”

Earlier this year, 54-year-old Otis Byrd was found dead and hanged in Claiborne County, Mississippi. Federal investigators said at the time that Byrd may have killed himself, an argument his family has disputed.
