WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities in central Georgia say the body of a 19-year-old man was found hanging in an elementary school playground.
Houston County schools spokeswoman Beth McLaughlin says the body was discovered as children at Lake Joy Primary School were being led to recess on Monday. McLaughlin tells the Macon Telegraph it's unclear how many students saw the body and district officials will be in contact with parents.
Officials say children were kept from going outside while emergency responders investigated and removed the body from campus.
County Coroner Danny Galpin says an autopsy is scheduled for the man on Tuesday and his identity hasn't been released.
