For Immediate Release                                                                                      June 28, 2017

  Body Found in a Field

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

 

            On June 27th DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a farmer on County Road 820 in the Grove Oak community, about a vehicle that he found in a field. When deputies arrived they found a body close to the vehicle, at which time an investigation was started. The body has not yet been positively identified. Jacksonville State University Center for Applied Forensics came to the scene to help with the processing of the scene. The body was sent to the Department of Forensics Science in Montgomery for an autopsy. This is still an ongoing investigation and no further information will be released at this time.

            Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson says “Thank you to the Jacksonville State University Center for Applied Forensics for their assistance on this case.”
