CONYERS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say foul play is not suspected in the death of a man whose burning body was discovered by hunters in Rockdale County.

The Rockdale Citizen reports county sheriff's investigator Michael Camp says the fire that killed the unidentified man was either accidental or intentional.

The man's burning body was discovered by hunters Sunday evening and was taken to the DeKalb County Medical Examiner's office for an autopsy. The case was initially treated as a suspicious death.

The newspaper reports authorities have tentatively identified the man, but did not release additional information about the victim. Authorities say they were initially unable to determine the skin color of the victim or the man's approximate age.
