QUITMAN COUNTY, GA (WTVM) -

Authorities are working to identify a body found in Lake Eufaula Friday, May 25.

According to officials with the DNR, the body was discovered by a fisherman in the area of the lake that is north of Georgetown, Georgia in Quitman County.

On May 29, the GBI confirmed that an autopsy has been completed and the individual was determined to be a male. 

Authorities say the body may have been in the water for some time because the body was "severely decomposed."

Investigators say how the body ended up in the lake, who is responsible and a positive ID of the body is still being investigated.
