[UPDATE] Leon County, Florida- August 7, 2012- 6pm
A man was found dead this morning inside of a pick-up truck off Highway 20 in Leon County. Detectives say foul play may be involved. Leon County Deputies tell me that it was someone who lives in this area who found the body inside of a pick-up truck. They say the passerby noticed that it was unusual for the pickup to be parked the way it was in these woods on Crooked Road.
Says Joyce: "A truck that looks very similar to that one parked out closer to the road."
Bob Joyce lives in the area where investigators found a man's body. Joyce says he saw a pickup truck that looks like this one Monday evening.
Leon County Sheriff's Deputies say when someone else spotted this truck Tuesday morning they saw a dead man inside.
"It wasn't that far back in the woods" says Joyce.
Steven Joyce, another area resident remarks he was: "Just kind of surprised. Most of the time it's quiet and peaceful; not too many strangers out here that I know of."
Deputies say a passerby noticed the Ford pickup in a wooded area of the 8400 block of Crooked Road around 7:40 a.m.
Investigators say when the man walked up to the truck, they noticed the body.
Bob Joyce: "It's not good; don't like it in your community. We'll let them figure out what happened."
Crime scene detectives were on scene much of the day trying to figure out what happened. They processed evidence in, on, and surrounding the truck. Violent Crimes detectives canvassed the neighborhood.
Says Steven Joyce: "I'm not used to things like this happening out here."
