Bibb County deputies have arrested a man after they say he was caught having sex with a dead woman outside a local homeless shelter.

Officials say they were called to the 100 block of Walnut Street just after 4 Sunday morning after a caller complained that two people were having intercourse on the front steps of the property.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they say they found a 55-year-old man in the middle of the act with a woman.

After asking the man to get dressed, deputies discovered the woman was unresponsive. An investigation showed that she "had been deceased for some time," officials say.
