Man found dead outside Church Hill mobile home

CHURCH HILL — The Wednesday morning discovery of a dead man outside of a Church Hill residence has spurred an investigation by local and state authorities,  with "persons of interest" reportedly being interviewed in the case. 

Church Hill Police Chief Mark Johnson says the body of an 18-year-old male was located at approximately 11 a.m. It was reportedly outside a mobile home on Burlington Road, and appears to have been in the elements for "several hours."

A press release from Johnson reports the man's next of kin has been notified. However, police are currently declining to identify him to the media.
