Deputies say the body was first seen at the Cecil Road Bridge in Paulding County. 

The body is described as a nude white male, about 5-foot-4, 153 pounds. He had a "music" tattoo on his right side and "Gemini" with stars on his right shoulder and back. He also had piercings in both ears. 

Authorities say the body was in the final stages of decompensation and at this time they're unable to determine how long it was in the water.
