ROME, Ga. (AP) - Officials say the remains of a contractor who was killed in a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan are scheduled to return to northwest Georgia.

Floyd County Police Maj. Tom Ewing tells the Rome News Tribune (https://bit.ly/1fKwvOa) the remains of 46-year-old Barry Sutton are expected to arrive in Atlanta Friday night and be escorted to northwest Georgia.

Sutton of Calhoun worked with DynCorp International, a Virginia-based military support business.

DynCorp officials say Sutton worked as the personnel and security transport lead for the Afghan National Police and was killed in a car bomb attack Aug. 22. Officials say Sutton had previously worked with the Floyd County police and sheriff’s departments.

DynCorp officials say a second Georgia contractor, 57-year-old Richard McEvoy of Peachtree City, was also killed in the attack.
