That was the result from a medical examiner at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Crime Lab who on Tuesday performed an autopsy on the body of Armando Ruiz Medina, 27, of Woodstock, said Lt. Jay Baker with the Cherokee Sheriff's Office.
Medina’s burned body was discovered Sunday in a wooded area near the Noonday Mobile Home Park along Dupree Road in Woodstock. Cherokee Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to the area when another person discovered the remains.
The body was determined to have been at the scene for a "number of days" and a gas tank and lighter were spotted near the corpse, Baker said.
Medina had been reported missing on Saturday by his ex-girlfriend. When she reported Medina missing to authorities, Baker said she informed deputies she'd broken up with him last Tuesday.
The woman told deputies that Media was "reportedly very upset over the break up," Baker added.
