The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is probing the death of a south Georgia sheriff.

Authorities say Miller County Sheriff H.E. Glass, known as "Buddy," was found dead at his home in Colquitt Saturday morning.

Officials have not disclosed how Glass died but said his wife found him lying in a pond behind their house after she came home from work.

Investigators say an autopsy will be performed on 68-year-old Glass to determine his official cause of death.

Colquitt is about 50 miles southwest of Albany.
