Albany train shed death ruled heat related

The man has been identified as 65 year old Jerry Lawrence Brown of Albany

ALBANY, GA – The Dougherty County Coroner’s Office has identified last week’s deceased man who was discovered in a railway yard building.

The man has been identified as 65 year old Jerry Lawrence Brown of Albany.

Coroner Michael Fowler says the heat-related death was compounded by ongoing health issues Brown had been suffering.

Brown was found during last week’s heat wave which prompted Albany & Dougherty County to open cooling stations for those to escape the heat.
