Decomposed body found in Peaceful Valley

A badly decomposed human body was found in Peaceful Valley Friday evening, and police are investigating today.

They had “complained of a foul odor nearby” and found the body at about 7 p.m., the release said. The body was taken to Holy Family Hospital Friday night. Detectives secured the scene last night due to poor lighting and weather, and are conducting a death investigation today, the release said.
