Decomposing Body Found in Live Oak

A decomposing body was discovered in Live Oak Monday afternoon along Highway 99, by a woman searching for cans.

The body was found in a dry canal off Highway 99 near Ash Street. Investigators say the body is so badly decomposed they do not have any information about who it might be or how they may have died.

The Sutter County Sheriff's Department has taped off the area with crime scene tape while they investigate.
