    Jordy, I don't know how much you expect out of the news. Police only release certain limited information at first.

    Granted, I would not be surprised if you could find out more of the story elsewhere, but still.

    A body found in the capital of the state and a major news sources say, "Raleigh police are investigating the discovery of a male body in a wooded area just beyond the end of Belmont Drive Thursday afternoon. It is currently unknown if foul play is involved. Coroners removed the body from the scene just after 6 p.m., right before a tow truck towed a car from the area." OUTSTANDING reporting!
