WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — A decomposing body has been found in woods next to Interstate 40 in Winston-Salem.
Two men working on a broken down vehicle found the body about 1 p.m. Monday.
Detectives don’t know if foul play was involved in the death. Investigators think the body is that of a male but are awaiting confirmation from an autopsy because of the advanced state of decomposition.
The autopsy is being performed at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Winston-Salem police Lt. Rob Cozart says investigators are not sure how long the body had been at the scene.
