Body found on Cumberland County boat ramp

Posted April 5, 2014

— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office was investigating the cause of death of a person found at a Cape Fear River boat ramp Saturday off N.C. Highway 87.

The body was found just after 2 p.m.

A sheriff's office spokesman said the body was so decomposed that it wasn't immediately apparent whether it was male or female. It was hoped that the medical examiner would be able to determine an identity and cause of death.
