Officials have confirmed a body found in the north Georgia woods is that of a professor wanted for killing his wife and two other people at a community theater two weeks ago.
Officials say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab confirmed Saturday that the body is 57-year-old University of Georgia marketing professor George Zinkhan.
Two guns were found with Zinkhan but police haven't said how he died. He was found covered with dirt and brush.
Zinkhan vanished after the April 25 shootings near the University of Georgia.
Cadaver dogs located his body Saturday about 16 kilometers west of Athens in thick woods in Bogart, where Zinkhan lived. Searchers had been scouring the woods since his Jeep was found wrecked and abandoned in a ravine.
