The body of a Center for Disease Control worker was discovered two months after he mysteriously vanished.
Timothy Cunningham, 35, was found in the Chattahoochee River on Tuesday night after people who were fishing saw a body and called 911.
The medical examiner says the preliminary cause of death is drowning and there are no signs of foul play. The manner of death is to be determined.
Timothy was identified by dental records.
Via ABC News:
Cunningham, a commander in the Public Health Service who responded to public health emergencies including the Ebola virus and the Zika virus, disappeared on Feb. 12 after he said he was sick and left his Atlanta office.
All of his belongings, including his dog, were left at his home, according to police and ABC affiliate WSB.
“This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances,” Maj. O’Connor told reporters in February.
“The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence,” O’Connor said. “His keys, his cell phone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all his identification, passport — everything you can think of, we’ve been able to locate. None of those items are missing.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know something ain’t right about this….
My condolences to the Cunningham family.
