SPARTA, Ga. – A 60-year-old man from Cumming was found murdered late Dec. 2 in his deer processing business in Hancock County.

The body of Nelson Garner, 60, was found by a relative around 9:30 p.m. at Garner's Grinder, 18630 Highway 16 in Sparta.

Garner was last seen alive at 4 p.m. Dec. 2.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents in the Milledgeville office are assisting in the investigation at the request of Hancock County Sheriff Tomlyn Primus.

An autopsy was conducted at the GBI Medical Examiner's Office in Decatur.

The cause of death is being withheld at this point due to the investigative value.

Garner stayed at the business during hunting season, but was a resident of Cumming.

He was a 50-year member of Cumming Second Baptist Church. He loved deer hunting, fishing and taxidermy.

Survivors include his wife, Harriette Garner, and son, Travis Lee Garner.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Hancock Sheriff's Office at 706-444-6471 or the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-597-8477 (TIPS).
