Body found in Woodville believed to be missing Huntsville man


We now know more about a body found in Woodville. 

The Jackson County Sheriff tells us they believe the body is that of a man reported missing out of Huntsville about two weeks ago. 

The body was found Friday night buried in a wooded area off County Road 86 near a home and two trailers. 

The Sheriff’s Office says they have people in custody on unrelated charges and expect charges for the murder to be made later this week. 

The investigation that began last Monday all started with a tip. 

“We received it from another police agency, that someone had came and told them there had been a homicide committed in our county,” says Jackson County Sheriff Chuck Phillips. 

The body is at forensics and an autopsy is being performed.

Investigators are not releasing the names of the victim or the suspects until a positive ID is made on the body and charges are filed against the suspects.
