Body Found Near Lindsey Wilson College

A body was found Tuesday in the back seat of a truck near Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia.  The truck was in the parking lot of Grider Apartments, which are leased to students on the edge of campus. 

Lindsey Wilson Spokesman Duane Bonifer says the body was found by a college employee.

"The truck had tinted windows that you couldn't see through, and it wasn't until someone approached the truck while they were cleaning the parking lot, that they saw a body inside it," explains Bonifer.

Adair County Coroner Todd Akin says the man's body appears to have been in the truck for several days and was decomposed.  The man's identity and whether foul play is suspected will be determined following an autopsy Wednesday in Louisville.
