Richmond County authorities pulled the body of a missing man from the Savannah River Saturday near the Fifth Street Marina.

Twenty seven year old Brandon Alexander Mathis was reported missing last Thursday.  Two days later, his body was found around 7:00 p.m. and authorities say they believe his body had been in the water several days. For now, investigators say the cause of Mathis’ death is suspicious, but his death has not been ruled a homicide.

An autopsy will be performed at the GBI Crime Lab.
