Albany police are investigating the second homicide of 2018 after the body of 57-year-old Walter Lee Boone Jr. was found just after 9:30 a.m. Monday morning.

Officials say that Boone was found in a wooded area across the street from the Hav-More Food Mart located in the 2200 block of West Gordon Avenue.

A cause of death has not been released by investigators.

Albany police announced just after 3 p.m. that a person of interest in the case was taken in for questioning. That person was identified just two hours later as 28-year-old Brandon Kentrell Harris, who has now been charged with murder.

A motive for the murder is still being investigated.
