UPDATE – 10:56 A.M.

WTOL-11 is reporting that the coroner’s office is now calling the case a homicide. Officials are working to find the identity of the person.

There were only partial remains of the body which has made it difficult to identify. Hancock County Coroner Dr. Mark Fox said that the body is a male though.

Lt. Matt Crow of the State Highway Patrol says there’s no connection to a body found off of I-70 in Columbus Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch reports the cause of death in that case was an overdose.
