A BODY has been found stuffed inside an abandoned toolbox that had been left at the side of the road.

Eric Hooper, of Alabama, has been arrested and charged with murder after dad-of-five LaChancey Williams, 40, was found dead in Georgia on March 15.

Road workers in Polk County discovered the body wrapped in tarp.

One thought it was a mannequin but called 911 after realizing there was a person inside the toolbox, Fox5 reported.

Hooper, 28, is in custody but cops want to quiz Nick Silvers, 38, who has been identified as a person of interest.

He was booked into Cherokee County jail after being extradited.
