MPD: Decomposed body discovered in Binghampton

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A death investigation is underway after a decomposed, male body was discovered Thursday.

The body was found in the 600 block of Scott Street in some overgrown bushes below the Summer Avenue overpass.

"It's shocking to see all the police. I'm like man what's going on?" said James Williams who lives nearby. "Then when I saw the forensics guy, I said, 'Oh my lord! Somebody's got to be dead.'"

Police took the body to the medical examiner's office where an autopsy will be performed.

"There aren't many people that come through there. It wouldn't cease to amaze me something like that would happen in a spot like this," said Williams.
