The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into the death of a 19-year-old man who appeared to have been stabbed to death in Loganville on Saturday.

GBI officials said Gregory Ryan Puckett, 19, was found with stab wounds in his home in the Sharon Church Road area over the weekend. The GBI Crime Lab is expected to perform an autopsy later this week to determine how and why Puckett died.

Walton County Sheriff’s Office officials said on Facebook that no one who lives in the neighborhood is in danger, but they asked the GBI to handle the investigation into the death “in an abundance of caution.”

The GBI said no further information will be available for release right now because of the ongoing investigation into Puckett’s death.
