Winchester Police Department started conducting a death investigation Tuesday evening. On October 25 around 7:00 p.m. a family member reported that a man had gone missing. The officers knew that the man frequently went through a wooded area behind the Lowe’s on Pleasant Valley Road.
Because of this, officers searched the area between Lowe’s and Interstate 81. Upon their search they discovered a tent with what was believed to be a white man’s dead body inside. The remains were sent to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office and there they planned to determine the cause of death and identify the body. While the investigation is ongoing, police don’t suspect any violent or treacherous actions.
