Brothers Christopher Cormier, William Cormier under arrest after body found in concrete
Two brothers have been arrested after Winder police said they found a body encased in concrete in the backyard of their father’s home.
Investigators from the Winder Police Department said they got a tip from the Pensacola Police Department in regards to a missing person from there, leading officers to a home on Sixth Avenue in Winder.
When police arrived they found a body buried in the ground, encased in concrete.
Two brothers were arrested and charged with concealing a death, Dennis Dorsey, Winder police chief, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The men, Christopher and William Cormier, could face additional charges pending the outcome of the investigation.
The body has been sent to the GBI Crime Lab for an autopsy and to be positively identified.

“We don’t even have a cause of death yet,” Dorsey said by phone Monday night. “If the autopsy shows what we expect it will show, the charges could be upgraded.
The brothers, who previously lived in Pensacola, told neighbors they were moving to Georgia, and the missing man was coming along, Dorsey said.
“They showed up at the father’s address about three weeks ago,” Dorsey said.
But the brothers’ friend was not with them, Dorsey said. The two allegedly told their father their friend had moved somewhere else, he said.
The Cormiers allegedly told their father their friend’s dog had died and that they planned to bury it in the backyard of the home, located in the 200 block of Sixth Avenue in Winder, Dorsey said.
“They claimed they buried the dog,” Dorsey said.
Investigators arrived at the home Monday and conducted a search warrant on the property. In the backyard, officers spotted an area where something had been buried, Dorsey said.
Investigators do not believe the homeowner, identified as the Cormiers’ father, will face charges.
