Body found on Jonah Tillman Road

MOULTRIE — The Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of death of a man whose body was found Thursday evening on Jonah Tillman Road.

Authorities were summoned to the mobile home near the intersection  of  Dean Matthews Road where the body was found.

The cause of death of the Hispanic male was not immediately determined and he had apparently no visible wounds, Sheriff Al Whittington said. Initial reports were that there was an attempt over the weekend to evict the man, but that was abandoned because of a language barrier.

It was not known how long he had been dead, Whittington said.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
