The body of triple murder suspect UGA Professor George Zinkhan was found nearly 1 mile from when his car was found last week. It appears he dug his own grave, covering himself before firing a single gun shot to the head. Two hand guns were found on the scene. An autopsy wil be performed to make positive identifiucation of the remains.
Zinkhan’s well-hidden body was discovered Saturday by cadaver dogs — an Australian shepherd and a German shepherd — at 9:50 a.m. Saturday. The civilian Alpha Search and Rescue Team was working woods beyond the initial search area. Zinkhan’s temporary grave was in thick woods about 1,000 yards from an elementary school and about a mile from where his red Jeep Liberty was recovered more than a week ago. Zinkhan’s home in Bogart in Clarke County is not far away.
