UPDATE: Body found in Oktibbeha County

By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Oktibbeha County Sheriff Dolph Bryan says a woman’s body found Sunday in a remote area of the county had no obvious signs of trauma or foul play.

He says, however, that the body was in such bad shape that authorities don’t know what happened to her. He says the body was sent to Jackson for an autopsy.

Bryan says the body was discovered by a group of people riding four-wheelers on local road.

Bryan says the body appeared to have been there for quite some time.

Investigators have not yet made a positive identification.
