Wanted Man Found Dead In Harrison County

A traffic stop on Interstate ten ended Wednesday with one man dead and another arrested on drug charges.

Deputies found 15 pounds of marijuana in 22 year old Edwin Snowden's SUV. Snowden, of Lawrenceville Georgia, is charged with possession with intent to distribute.

When Snowden's SUV was pulled over in West Harrison County, his passenger ran off. Helicopters searched from the air and deputies and dogs combed the sides of the Highway looking for the man.

Deputies found the man a little while later. He was dead, hanging by his own belt from a fence near a construction company. The man has not been identified.
