Body of man discovered near St. Joe Road
A man's body was found in the woods Thursday morning near St. Joe Road, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office. Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin said a person called the agency with a tip that led detectives to the body. The man is believed to have been between 25 and 45 years old. At this point, investigators are calling the unidentified man's death "suspicious" and have not said whether foul play is suspected. The body was found about 9:30 this morning about 150 feet into the woods, Tobin said. The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death and help identify the body, Tobin said.
