A body found on South Hickory Street in Canton appears to have been there for weeks, according to WLBT.
Canton Police Chief Otha Brown says officers responded to a call about a foul odor around 5:30 p.m. on Friday.
The body was found at that scene in an overgrown area near a ditch.
Brown says the body was badly decomposed.
So far no identity or cause of death has been released.
