Body found near house
The body of a man in his late 20s to early 30s was found hidden down a dirt road behind an abandoned house on Avenue 9 near Road 22 on Friday afternoon. The man’s body reportedly had sustained suspicious injuries.
His name was not being disclosed as of press time.
The body was discovered after a passerby, driving down the rural road, noticed something suspicious in a pile of debris and notified deputies.
Authorities are not releasing many other details, citing the ongoing investigation, but have ruled it a homicide and are looking for any information from anyone who may have seen a vehicle, or anything unusual, in the area at the time. The alleged homicide and dumping of the man’s body may have occurred sometime between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, they said.
Anyone with information on the alleged homicide is asked to call Valley Crime Stoppers at 498-7867, or provide their tips anonymously if they prefer, on line. Valley Crime Stoppers pays up to a $3,000 cash reward for anonymous information leading to an arrest and conviction in a crime.
