Authorities said a body was found in a wooded area in York County Monday and they are asking for the public’s help.
York-Poquoson Sheriff’s deputies received a call Monday about a “suspicious incident” near the 100 block of Long Green Boulevard, said sheriff’s Capt. Tommy West. The area is near the YMCA and Tabb Library.
Shelley Ward, spokeswoman for YPSO, said a passerby had been walking a dog in the area when the animal pulled the passerby over toward a spot near the woods. The body was hidden under leaves and the passerby didn’t see it. However, the passerby felt there was something wrong and called YPSO around 7:25 a.m. on Monday.
Deputies found a body in the wood line near the area.
YPSO is currently not releasing any identifying information about the body. The body is being sent to the medical examiner who will most likely start working on it tomorrow, Ward said.
Authorities are asking anyone who saw anything suspicious in that area, specifically in the YMCA and Tabb Library parking lots, to call the crime line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or the YPSO at 757-890-3621 and reference case No. 2001288.
