16-year-old McIntosh student found dead in home hot tub

The body of 16-year-old Chase Burnett was found early Sunday morning in the hot tub at his residence near Peachtree City. The death is being investigated by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s spokesman Brent Rowan on Sunday said Burnett was found by his father in the hot tub at their Diamond Point residence at approximately 6 a.m. Rowan said the 16 year-old was unresponsive  when his father found him.

Rowan said Burnett's body has been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation where an autopsy will be performed to identity any contributing factors which may have led to his drowning death.

Rowan said Burnett attended McIntosh High School in Peachtree City. The school’s resource officer has been notified, Rowan added.

Rowan said the incident is currently under investigation.
