    A body found earlier this month in a wooded area of east Alabama has been identified as a Gwinnett County man missing since before Christmas.

    St. Clair County, Ala., Sheriff Terry Surles said Wednesday the body discovered Jan. 3 near Riverside, Ala., is that of 61-year-old Barry Alan Helling of Snellville.
    Helling, who was found by two fishermen in woods off U.S. 78 east of Birmingham and about 140 miles from his home, died from an apparent gunshot wound to the back of the head.

    Helling was last seen leaving his house on Dec. 9, and was reported missing by his partner later that day

    That's too bad. I wonder what the story will eventually reveal.
