62-year-old Calhoun man found dead behind Walgreens identified

The body of a man, later identified as 62-year-old Bobby Commander, was found in a tent in the woods behind Walgreens, 910 S. Wall St., according to Calhoun Police Chief Tony Pyle.

A man was found dead behind Walgreens, 910 S. Wall Street, Wednesday afternoon, according to Calhoun Police Chief Tony Pyle.

The man, identified as 62-year-old Bobby Commander, is believed to have been homeless and had been living in town for some time. No foul play is suspected in the case, according to Pyle.

“A friend of his who checked on him from time to time found him,” Pyle said.

Reports from Wednesday state that two men went to check on Commander in the afternoon and discovered him unresponsive in his tent.

The two men who found him contacted authorities at that time and were eventually greeted by first responders with AdventHealth Gordon EMS.

Gordon County Deputy Coroner Nicholson responded to the scene Wednesday, but could not be reached for comment before press time.
