The remains of a woman was found in a remote area of Morris, according to a statement released by Otsego County District Attorney John Muehl.
The decomposing body was discovered by two people who were using a metal-detecting device in the area. The two people found the body because of the smell caused by decomposition, Muehl said.
Authorities estimate the woman’s corpse was there for about two months.
"We don't know who the victim is. There is no missing person and we don't think the victim is local,” Muehl said in a statement. “We don't even have a suspect yet.”
The DA said he is waiting for an autopsy report before drawing any conclusions. But Muehl said he suspects the victim was killed elsewhere and the body dumped in Morris.
It is unlikely the unidentified body is connected to other recent murder or homicide cases in the area, Muehl said.
