Andrew Wordes Dies in Home Explosion
Though the body found in the charred home Monday, March 26, was thought to be Wordes, official confirmation did not come until late Tuesday.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner has officially identified the body of Andrew Wordes as the one found in his Alpine Drive home, which exploded in Roswell Monday.
"There is no cause of death at this time," said the statement released by the Roswell Police Department late Tuesday afternoon. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office would not release any further information at this time, other than to say that Wordes was still at their facility and his next of kin had been notified.
Wordes, known as the Roswell Chicken Man, is thought to have caused the explosion that blew up his home Monday afternoon, March 26, while Fulton County Marshals were on the property to evict him. His lawyer has told the press that he had filed a last minute injunction earlier that morning to stop the eviction, but the marshals showed up just after.
