WILMINGTON — Authorities are working to identify a badly decomposed body that was discovered Friday by a farmer in a corn field off Davids Drive.

Wilmington police report that the remains were taken to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office to determine identity (including gender) as well as cause of death, and an investigation is underway.

On Tuesday WPD Sgt. Bob Wilson told the News Journal it had been determined that the body was a “middle-aged white male.”

WPD Acting Chief Ron Cravens said no foul play is suspected. Police will release more information if and when the remains are positively identified and after next of kin are notified.
