Pitt County deputies say a body has been found just outside the city limits of Greenville.
It happened around 1:00 p.m. on Bells Chapel Road, near its intersection with Old Fire Tower Road.
The man who found the body tells WITN News that the victim lives in a nearby trailer back in the woods. The victim was found inside that trailer.
The Sheriff's Office says since the body was so badly decomposed that they can't immediately identify the victim. An autopsy will have to be done to determine how the man died.
