ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say a man who was found dead near Interstate 20 got out of a car on the highway after an argument and likely fell down a steep embankment.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner has identified the man as Russell T. Sutton Jr. of Conyers.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/JMco2i ) that the man was with family and friends at a tavern on New Year's Eve. Jones says the man was later involved in an argument and told the person driving that he'd rather walk.
Jones says an autopsy will be performed to determine the man's cause of death.
