A missing person case has turned into a death investigation, according to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

BCSO spokesman Adam Lewis said the agency is conducting an investigation into the death of Curtis Kapteina, whose body was found in a wooded area near his Cleveland residence around 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Members of the BCSO’s Criminal Investigation Division, the Bradley County Medical Examiner, and Sheriff Steve Lawson were on the scene following the discovery of Kapteina’s body.

According to an earlier BCSO news release issued on Saturday afternoon, Kapteina, 31, was last seen Saturday around 4:30 p.m. near the area of his residence on Branam Road. He was wearing brown work boots, blue jeans and a black T-shirt, and was described as 6 feet tall, weighing 195 pounds and having brown eyes.

In addition, according to the BCSO, Kapteina was known to suffer from seizures and asthma, and he reportedly did not have his medication with him.

The investigation is continuing and “the final report has not been completed by the Criminal Investigation Division,” Lewis said this morning.

Also, Lewis asked the public to “please keep the friends and family of Mr. Kapteina in your thoughts today.”
