Two juveniles discovered a body in a field near the Walmart off Waldo Road on Wednesday.
According to Gainesville Police Department (GPD) Lt. Lisa Scott, officers were near the area on a separate call when the juveniles contacted police around 6:36 p.m.
“They found a white male,” Scott said in a phone interview, adding the juveniles were tipped off when they saw a lot of flies near the body’s location. “It was badly decomposed with no identification.”
The body was found in a field around the corner from the bus stop on NE 12th Avenue.
Scott said GPD detectives will request forensics and treat the death with suspicion.
