Macon police investigators are trying to figure how a Lizella man died and why he ended up in a ditch in Central City Park.

Thursday morning, city workers repairing a fence at Macon's Luther Williams Field found his body.

Bibb County coroner Leon Jones identified the man as 29-year-old Mark Nixon of Lizella.

He said Nixon was last seen on March 5th, leaving the emergency room at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. He said Nixon left the hospital against medical advice, but said he was not sure why Nixon visited the hospital.

Jones said Nixon's body on Thursday showed no sign of injuries or foul play.

Macon police said they have no additional information on the case.
