Police say a postal worker who worked in south Georgia killed a young gay man and former porn actor who grew up in metro Atlanta, dumping his body in a wooded area near the Georgia-Florida border after an argument turned deadly.

Family and friends say Robert Glenn Hucks, 20, went missing on Jan. 17 after being seen leaving Metro, a gay bar in Jacksonville, Fla., where he lived. On Thursday, hunters found Hucks' body in Camden County, Ga., near the Georgia-Florida border. Hours later, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of Jeremy Christian Pittman, a 34-year-old U.S. Postal Service employee.

Authorities allege that Pittman (second photo) killed Hucks (top photo) after the pair left the gay club. Pittman lives in Jacksonville but works in St. Mary's, Ga.

The case started as a missing persons investigation, but "thoughts of foul play" developed and homicide investigators were later brought in, according to Adam Brown, Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Chief of Investigations.

After leaving Metro, Pittman and Hucks went to Pittman's home. But an argument ensued, according to Brown, and Hucks asked to be driven to his home. Brown did not say what the two men argued about.

"Somewhere in between the suspect's and the vicitm's home, the suspect murdered the victim," Brown said during a Friday morning press conference. "He later dumped the victim's body in a wooded area in Camden County, Ga."

Pittman is cooperating with investigators, Brown said. He was scheduled to appear in a Duval County, Fla., court on Friday.

Hucks had lived in metro Atlanta, attending South Paulding High School and growing up in Villa Rica. He was featured in a handful of gay porn videos for Boy Crush with the stage name Ryan Morrison (NSFW). Gay porn site Dewayne In San Diego reported Hucks also performed under the name of Ryan Ray Gibson.

I know many of my readers are long time Boy Crush fans and members and will join me in wishing his family peace and our condolences.

Hucks was open about his stint in gay porn videos, but posted in his Twitter bio that he's since moved on.

"Porn is my past helping kids and ppl is in my future. Time to get my ged and go to college!"

Friends turned Hucks' Facebook page, where he used the name Ryan Ray Gibson, into a makeshift memorial.

Austin Mi'Kel Nations, who attended Atlanta Pride with Hucks, recalled his smile and the fun times they shared at Atlanta Pride.

Your smile will forever shine on Ryan Ray Gibson. I'll always love you and cherish the fun times we had, especially our first Atlanta pride  rest in peace Glenn, you've always been an angel

Others, such as Matt Alan Barnett, expressed shock at the news of Hucks' death.

Never in a million years would I thought I would see your name in headlines this way. RIP Glenn. You'll be remembered greatly.

River Acheron hoped that Hucks would be found safe.

I cannot even find the words right now. Every day I'd log on hoping you would be found safe and this was my worst nightmare. I just don't know what to say right now. It just makes me more misanthropic about this disgusting society we live in where people feel the need to hurt one another. I hope the suspect rots slowly in prison for a very long time.

I'll never delete you from my friends list. *hugs*
