— Police were investigating Friday after a body was found underneath a Fayetteville home.

The body of Tony Locklear, 31, was found in the crawlspace of a home in the 200 block of C Street shortly before 9 a.m., police said.

Police said Locklear was a plumber. The cause of death wasn't immediately known, but investigators don't suspect foul play.

His body was sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

Public Works Commission crews had to shut off power to the home so investigators could safely recover Locklear's body.
