A former North Georgia College & State University soccer player may have been dead for as long as two days before his wrecked car was discovered Monday afternoon in a wooded area of Habersham County, officials said.
The model car lay shattered on the basement floor, its pieces scattered in every direction.
For weeks, a young Tod Peavy had tinkered and toiled and thought of nothing but this car. But his foster mother resented the red roadster. She hadn't given it to him. Instead, a holiday well-wisher purchased the present for an anonymous foster child, and caseworkers put the toy in the boy's hands for Christmas.
