The preliminary investigation shows the male had a chain wrapped around his neck, Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said. The chain was locked in several places and keys to the locks were found in one of the victim's pockets, Chafee said. Investigators canvassed the area and located one person who said they overheard someone yelling "don't do it," Chafee said.
The victim is believed to be in his mid to late 20s, police said. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has not been able to notify next of kin.
