In a bizarre story out of northwest Georgia, a Floyd County man has been arrested on a felony warrant charging him with Concealing the Death of Another.
According to the warrant – James William Whitaker, age 69 of Silver Creek, hindered the discovery of a deceased woman who was in his Harris Road residence for what is believed to have been three days. After a relative called 9-1-1 to ask for a welfare check, Whitaker refused to allow first responders into the home. Once authorities gained entry the body was located at the entryway, partially covered by multiple fabrics.
Whitaker was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.
