Thirty-three-year-old Sharpsburg resident Eric Waters was found dead on the CSX railroad tracks near downtown Senoia during the nighttime hours of Sept. 6. Though he was apparently hit by the train, the investigation into Waters' death is active and ongoing.

Batts said Waters had been run over by the train.
