MARIETTA — Cobb Police are investigating a homicide after a man’s body was found Monday evening in an east Cobb home across from Holly Springs Cemetery.

Around 6:30 p.m., an unidentified man was found dead inside a home at 2808 Gracewood Drive, which is off Holly Springs Road north of Post Oak Tritt Road.

Cobb Police have identified the victim, but are not releasing his name or age until next of kin is notified.

According to the Cobb County Tax Assessor’s office, the ranch home that was built in 1974 has been owned by Jerry Moore since 2005.

Sgt. Dana Pierce, spokesman for Cobb County Police Department, said it would be speculation at this point to say if the victim knew his killer.

“The homicide investigation is still active and ongoing, and the Cobb County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit is not releasing the manner in which (the suspect or suspects) entered the house,” said Pierce.

The Cobb County Medical Examiner’s Office said it would complete the autopsy by 2 p.m. Tuesday and give that information to Cobb Police. However, at 4 p.m. Cobb Police had still not released any information on the homicide and had not returned phone calls.

Cobb Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call 770-499-3945.
