Sheriff’s department reports apparent suicide of Rockdale teen
The Milam County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the apparent suicide of a 16-year-old Rockdale High School sophomore Wednesday evening.
Deputy Chris White said the body of Justin Keith Bailey was found after a brief search off County Road 327.
Reports from the scene termed the incident a “hanging.”
The sheriff’s department, and Rockdale Volunteer Fire Department, answered a “missing teenager” call at 8:32 p.m.
