On Friday evening, authorities in Cumberland County said that a woman’s body had been discovered off to the side of a road.
Deputy Lieutenant C. Wells of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office stated that the incident was alleged to have occurred about 8:35 p.m. on the 6900 block of River Road.
According to Wells, the body was discovered some distance away from the road, although it was still rather close by. According to Wells, the body may be recognized in some way.
According to what Wells said in an interview with CBS 17,
“We can tell that the person was a certain age — so [the body] was not out there for an extended period of time.”
The identity of the woman is being kept under wraps pending notification of her nearest of kin.
The location is approximately one-mile northeast of Fayetteville, close to Wade, and less than one thousand feet from the Cape Fear River.
As of 10:45 p.m., the road was blocked off because law enforcement officials were on the scene conducting an investigation.
According to Wells, the route would most certainly be closed for several hours throughout the night.
According to the statements made by the sheriff’s office, the circumstances surrounding this investigation are still being looked into.
