ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Enterprise police are investigating a body found inside a vehicle.

“We were notified that a property owner discovered a vehicle on his land in the woods,” Enterprise Police Lieutenant Billy Haglund said. “He approached the vehicle, discovered that there were human remains in it. We then responded to the scene.”

The body was found on private property in the woods off a dirt road on County Road 156. Residents in the area did not want to speak on camera.

The victim’s identity is not known at this time since it was in bad condition.

“The body was in a state of decomposition where we could not positively identify it at this time,” Haglund said. “It will be transported to Department of Forensic Sciences for analysis in Montgomery.”

Once it is identified, the person’s next of kin will be notified.

One Enterprise citizen was shocked and sad about the finding of the body and not knowing much about the situation surrounding it.

“Well, anytime you hear of somebody passing or a death it’s always a sad thing, especially being so close to home,” Zack Sullivant said. “Um, you know, just not knowing the circumstances right away.”
