re­ported miss­ing by his fam­ily on Fri­day, July 13. Baldridge’s body was trans­ported to the GBI Crime Lab for ex­am­i­na­tion.

“I would like to thank the Gor­don County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, as well as the Ge­or­gia Bu­reau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion, for their as­sis­tance in this mat­ter,” said Cal­houn Po­lice Chief Tony Pyle. “Both agency’s as­sis­tance in this in­ves­ti­ga­tion has proven to be in­valu­able.”

A sec­ond death was also in­ves­ti­gated on Sun­day, around 2: 15 p. m., when of­fi­cers were dis­patched to Con­fer­ence Drive, be­hind Food Lion, for a med­i­cal call.

Upon ar­rival, of­fi­cers spoke with James O’Daniel, who no­ti­fied au­thor­i­ties that 44- year- old Aaron Erick Lee, of Dal­ton, stopped by the lo­ca­tion, which is a home­less tent com­mu­nity, to bring ice and other items for the home­less pop­u­la­tion lo­cated in the area. O’Daniel told of­fi­cers that Lee fell at the top of the em­bank­ment where the tent com­mu­nity is lo­cated and had, what ap­peared to O’Daniel, to be a seizure. EMS was called to the scene and O’Daniel told of­fi­cers that was when Lee jumped up and ran about 10 to 15 feet into the woods and fell. When EMS ar­rived to the scene, Lee was in full car­diac ar­rest.

Cal­houn Fire and Gor­don EMS trans­ported Lee to Gor­don ER. CPD took pos­ses­sion of Lee’s wal­let, which had fell out of his pocket when he fell, and turned over the red Ford Ranger that Lee was driv­ing to wrecker ser­vice. Of­fi­cers noted that on the hood of Lee’s truck was a can of Red Bull that was about half full. O’Daniel told of­fi­cers that Lee was drink­ing from the can be­fore they car­ried ev­ery­thing up the em­bank­ment. Lee was pro­nounced dead at Gor­don Hospi­tal of what ap­pears to be nat­u­ral causes.
