DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris said an autopsy identified the body as Gary Lee Willis, 38,  of Boaz. The sheriff said he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The body was found around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in a car about one-tenth of a mile off County Road 135 near Geraldine.

The vehicle belonged to Willis, who was last seen Saturday night when he left his home.

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said his department is working with DeKalb County to pursue leads in the case.
