Hunter found dead in Talbotton, Ga., woods

A hunter from Atlanta was found dead in the woods of Talbotton, Ga., Friday.

No foul play was suspected, said Clinton Cosby, Talbot County coroner.

Sammy E. Bryson, 60, and a friend had ventured into the woods to go hunting around 7:30 a.m. that day. They had agreed to meet at 10 a.m., but when Bryson didn’t show up, his friend went to look for him.

Bryson’s body was found off of Kelly Road. Cosby pronounced him dead at 10:30 a.m. The coroner said the man had a history of cardiac problems and it appeared to be a natural death.
