Authorities in Wilkes County are still investigating the Friday morning discovery of a man, fatally shot in the head.

43-year-old Jonathan Whitmore of North Wilkesboro was found in a ditch near the intersection of Holland Street and Mimosa Lane just after 7 a.m. While preliminary autopsy results have been released to authorities, a more conclusive autopsy is pending.
