METTER, Ga. (WSAV) - Authorities have charged and arrested a mortician for throwing away human remains in Metter.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) has also identified the remains of three individuals believed to have been dead for over 25 years.

Human remains were found on Dec. 28 at a local scrap yard. Investigators say they originated from Hodges Funeral Home in Metter.

On Thursday, authorities arrested Percy Hodges, 70, for Throwing Away or Abandonment of Dead Bodies. Hodges is listed as a mortician for Hodges Funeral Home.

He has been released to the custody of the Candler County Sheriff’s Office.

The GBI and Candler County Sheriff’s Office searched the funeral home Thursday as a part of their investigation and to positively identify the remains found.

The deceased have since been identified as Theresa McClarin, Leroy Dixon, and Mamie Fredricks.
