An investigation is underway into the death after the Baldwin County Police Office said a body was found near a welcome center off Highway 10.
Representatives said the body had been found by a transport worker and that it would be sent to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
It’s a weekend so people will travel today. We are leaving the area, so there shouldn’t be a lot of law enforcement other than regular patrols. The comfort zone is open and we don’t think there is any kind of threat, “says Lieutenant Andre Reed.
Lt. Reed says one of them that they are able to identify the victim, they will notify the family and then follow the strings to find out how the body ended up in the woods.
If you know anything, or if it’s a missing friend or family member, he says, call the sheriff’s office.
