Body of man found encased in concrete in backyard of Ga. home identified as Fla. man

Authorities have identified the body of a man who was found entombed in concrete in the backyard of a northeast Georgia home.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation medical examiner's office said Friday that the man has been identified as 30-year-old Sean Dugas, who was a reporter in Pensacola, Fla. The body was found Monday encased in a plastic storage container filled with concrete.

Authorities say Christopher and William Cormier, 31-year-old twins, were charged this week with murder in the death of Dugas. The brothers are also charged with concealing death.

Winder, Ga., police officer Chris Cooper says medical examiners declared the death a homicide based on the number and location of the man's injuries.

Police say Dugas had been reported missing and was last heard from on Aug. 27.
