Candler, NC -- Deputies are investigating a body found in Buncombe County Friday morning, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Residents told deputies they were cleaning up around their property when they found the body around 11:45 a.m. in a wooded area. The Sheriff's Office has not released the person's name as it is still notifying next of kin.
"We are working it as a suspicious death," said Lt. Randy Sorrells. "Of course, the autopsy will provide us the definitive cause of death."
The Sheriff's Office was not aware of any disturbance in the area before receiving the call.
