Body found in Union Parish, badly decomposed.

Posted: Updated:

UNION PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Union Parish Sheriff's office is reporting that a badly decomposed body has been found near Farmerville.

According to Sheriff Bob Buckley, the body was found in a heavily wooded area, by a man and his children who were riding four-wheelers late yesterday. The body was found about two miles northeast of Farmerville.

"Our detectives and crime scene deputies have been out there last night and throughout the day conducting the investigation," Buckley said. The body has been sent to Little Rock for an autopsy after which it will be sent to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge for a facial reconstruction.

At this time, Buckley said not even the race or sex of the body could be determined. "There's really nothing more we can say at this time except that the investigation is continuing," he said. According to Buckley, there are currently no missing person reports in Union Parish so it is believed that the body could possibly be that of someone from another parish.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the Union Parish Sheriff's Office at 318-368-3124 or Crime Stoppers of Union Parish at 318-368-9679.
