The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Timothy Johnson, who went missing in Spalding County, Georgia, last December, has been cleared up.
His decaying corpse has been found inside the wall of an abandoned Howard Johnson motel.
A thief apparently broke into the motel and discovered the body and called the police.
Johnson looks to have been trying to steal copper plumbing and/or wiring from the building; the police do not suspect foul play.
