BREAKING: Body found in State Park overnight, murder suspected cause of death.

 

LAKE OLERYBEN STATE PARK – Deputies and the medical examiner are working into the night tonight with what is believed to be a body found on the side of Highway 214 in the state park. While sheriff’s officials aren’t saying much, scanner traffic indicates deputies found a “body pinned to a tree” and “mutilated.” When our reporters arrived on scene, the body was tarped off from the roadway, presumably to shield it from onlookers. Highway 14 remains closed in both directions at this time.

A name, official cause of death and other details have not been released. The murder is the 14th in Fox Hollow this year and constitutes a continued remarkable spike in crime rates from previous years.

Crime will surely be a major topic in the upcoming Mayoral and County Council elections, with candidates expected to be announcing later this week.
