MORGAN COUNTY - The body of a person who authorities believe is a homicide victim was apparently dumped just north of Wiggins.

The victim was found at around 8:30 a.m. Sunday in the area of Road 4 and Highway 34, the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says. His body was in a row of trees.

Investigators say the person was the victim of a homicide in another county. Authorities did not say exactly where, or if any suspects are in custody.

The victim has not yet been identified.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says “there is no element of danger locally from this event.”
