A Madison County resident was found deceased in a vehicle off Rock Quarry Road Thursday morning.
Charles Richard "Rick" Barber, 61, Danielsville, died of natural causes in his vehicle this week.
“A gentleman was driving on Rock Quarry Road (we believe on Monday morning) when, for an unknown reason the driver left the roadway and traveled into an area of thick vegetation,” said C.E. Parker, spokesperson for the Athens Post of the Georgia State Patrol. “The driver was deceased upon discovery of the vehicle.”
The body was sent to the Georgia Crime Lab for an autopsy. Madison County Coroner Julie Phillips said the autopsy revealed an underlying medical condition.
