Body found in dilapidated barn

Posted: Updated:

SPENCER COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – Indiana State police said foul play is suspected after a body was found in a southwestern Indiana barn.

Investigators said Friday someone was looking for scrap wood in a dilapidated barn when they discovered the body.

The coroner said the body had been there for awhile.

Forensic anthologists and state police crime scene investigators spent the weekend looking for answers.

Terry Ledlow who lives down the street said the area near Grandview is a friendly community, "It's kind of shocking. Like I said, you really don't hear of anything like that happening around here. It's a pretty quiet neighborhood. We don't have any vandalism."

Investigators have contacted agencies in Kentucky and Indiana to check for missing persons that could be a positive match.
