Man charged with murder after body found in trunk near Gwinnett border

A man has been charged with murder after authorities found a body in a car trunk on the Gwinnett-Barrow county line last week, deputies announced Monday.

Deputies accuse Anthony Christopher Woschula, 34, of killing 57-year-old Victor Clark, whose identity was also released Monday.

Authorities have not released a motive nor a connection between the men.

Clark was reported missing from his home on Chimney Trace Drive in Winder early Wednesday.

When authorities came to the house at 7:35 a.m., Woschula ran but was caught by a K-9 officer. He is also wanted on outstanding drug charges.

Woschula told investigators he knew where Clark was. Police found Clark’s body in the trunk of his gold Toyota Camry covered with a blanket.

Law enforcement previously said Clark was likely killed at his home. But the news release from Barrow deputies Monday lists him as being from Fayetteville, North Carolina. A spokesperson was not immediately available to explain.

Woschula has been denied bond. He is currently in Barrow County on the murder charges, along with acharges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault, concealing a death and tampering with evidence.
