Body Discovered in DeKalb County, Alabama
Horseback riders in a wooded area near Ider Alabama made a gruesome discovery Sunday afternoon at about 4 p.m.
They found someone's body.
DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris says the body appears to be that of a local missing man. But the investigation still hasn't revealed a positive identification.
The body is now at the Alabama Department of Forensics in Hunstville.
“We had people working all night on this case, I hope we can get a positive ID soon and follow up on some leads developed so far,” Sheriff Harris said.
