Bibb County coroner Leon Jones is looking for family members of a man whose body was found in a vacant downtown Macon warehouse.
Jones identified the body as that of 69-year-old Charles Skipper.
The warehouse is located on 6th street. Jones says the homeless have turned the building into a "very organized" facility fit for sleeping, complete with beds and even desks.
Jones says just after 11:30 Friday morning, one of the people who sleeps in the vacant building discovered Skipper unresponsive on the floor. That's when he called 911.
By the time authorities arrived, Skipper had passed away. Jones says the man had an extensive medical history.
"He does have a bruise on his head," says Jones. "That could be where he fell. He was moved from one location to another location after he fell."
An autopsy on Monday will provide an official cause of death.
