AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Newly released documents suggest the doctor found murdered in November may have been lured to Augusta by the promise of a sexual encounter.

According to an affidavit, the suspect, Glenn Riggs II, told deputies he met Dr. Charles Mann online where the two discussed meeting.

A day after being reported as missing, investigators say they found Mann's body in this creek off of Willis Forman Road just about 10 miles from where they say he was murdered.

Mann was a surgeon in Barnwell and lived near Macon.

Riggs is currently in the Richmond County Jail charged with robbery by force and murder. He has to go before a Superior Court judge to set bond.

Court records show Riggs has a history of criminal charges. According to Sheriff's Office records, he had several misdemeanor arrests ranging from criminal trespass to simple battery and some traffic violations.
