Man Finds Decomposing Body In Woods
Investigators are trying to figure out how a dead body ended up in a wooded area by the Dollar General in D’Iberville.
The D’Iberville police say a man riding his bike found the decomposing body inside a shed behind a vacant house on Lemoyne Boulevard last night.
The house has been vacant for years and stands right near Wilford Seymour Road.
Authorites lined the wooded property with caution tape, and D’Iberville fire fighters helped light the area for investigators.
A Gulfport resident who was at the Dollar General right near where the body was found tells News 25 he’s disturbed by the recent crimes.
“It’s upsetting just to know the dead body was probably there for a while, and probably two weeks ago this dollar general was robbed at gun point, so just hoping this trend goes down. Hoping there isn’t going to be a trend.
– Richard Fernandez Gulfport Resident
“Basically we got a phone call from a citizen, that said they had found a dead body located in an out-building inside this house.”

Captain Marty Griffin tells News 25 investigators have yet to identify the body and they don’t know how long the decomposing body has been there.
