Officials with the Miller County Sheriff's Office have confirmed that long-time Sheriff, H.E. Glass was found dead earlier this morning behind his home.
Reports are that Glass was found in a pond behind his property, submerged underneath his golf cart. Officials say his wife found him that way around 7:00 AM this morning.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case at this time, and officials say a new interim sheriff will be sworn in by Monday morning.
