A neighbor found a man's body Monday morning near his home off Black Creek Road near the Bruce community.
Investigators say the victim died from a gunshot wound sometime between Aug. 12 and 14. They don't know if the murder took place at the site, or if the murder happened somewhere else and the killer dumped the body.
They have not been able to identify the man, because his body was badly decomposed. But they believe he is Hispanic, in his early 20's about 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighs about 140-pounds.
The victim had short brown hair and was clean-shaven.
