Police said they responded to the area Friday afternoon and were at the scene for "several hours," KATC reported.
"We don't even know if there's foul play involved in it. We have to wait for the coroner's report from the crime lab to determine if there is any foul play. It's an ongoing investigation we can't tell you much more than that", Sheriff Ivy Woods told the television station.
