COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- Police in western Georgia say a former Columbus radio personality has been found dead behind a church.

Authorities say 57-year-old David Rutherford was found behind Greater Ward Chapel AME Church Wednesday and the man's death has been ruled a homicide. Rutherford, originally from New Jersey, became a taxi driver after retiring from Magic 101.3 FM.

Police have yet to disclose details on the man's death, but neighbors said they heard Rutherford being robbed outside of his house and his body was later moved out of sight.

Rutherford, known as Dave Ford while he was on the air, has also worked for radio stations in Manchester, Ga., Miami and Washington D.C.
