Authorities Working To Identify Body Found In NC
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are working to identify a body found in southern Randolph County.
Investigators from the Ash-Rand Rescue Squad and the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office were doing training on Saturday when they discovered the body at a makeshift shelter in a wooded area.
Authorities said the shelter was made out of large black garbage bags tied to tree saplings. They also found food, water bottles, tools and a suitcase.
Investigators said it appeared the person had been dead for several weeks. The body is being sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Raleigh for identification.
