Coroner: autopsy confirms Bogart man killed by train


By Joe Johnson

A Bogart man whose body was found July 19 along CSX railroad tracks in western Athens-Clarke County had been struck by a train, an autopsy at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s State Crime Lab confirmed, according to Clarke County Coroner Sony Wilson.

State medical examiners determined that the death of 28-year-old Christopher Lee  Stokes had been accidental, Wilson said Monday morning.

A CSX employee found his body while inspecting train tracks about a mile and a half east of the Fowler Mill Road train crossing, Wilson said, and it appeared that it had been there at least a couple days.

According to his obituary, Stokes was born on Jan. 16, 1992, son of Henry Stokes and Sue McAllister.

 Survivors include sons, Rylee Stokes and Audin Stokes; a daughter, Alyssa Stokes; a brother, Fletcher Stokes; and a sister, Crystal Pound.
