STOCKBRIDGE, Ga. -- Henry County Police are looking for two persons of interest to question them about a body that was found in a van at a Stockbridge Walmart Saturday.

Police said the man, 67-year-old Saturnino "Tony" Tamez, died from a gunshot wound and the van he was found in was parked in the Hudson Bridge Road store's parking lot six days earlier. The body was found by a worker from a nearby business.

"The employee happened to just go by there and he noticed something unusual about the vehicle and when he looked inside, he noticed what he thought was a body," said Sgt. Joey Smith with Henry County Police.

The two people they want to talk to are very close to Tamez, according to Smith.

"We believe they can help shed some light on the homicide investigation," he said. "We're not saying they're suspects; it's just that we want to talk to them."
