NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. ( – Police are investigating a possible homicide in North Attleboro.
A source told FOX 25 that a teenager was jogging Monday when he discovered a body near an old construction area on John Dietsch Road. The Bristol district attorney's office says the body was found at about 5:30 p.m.

Authorities did not say if the body was a man or a woman, and did not say whether it had been dumped in the area or the person had died at the site.

Details of the death were not immediately released, but the DA's office says based on the "nature and circumstances" of the discovery, the death is under investigation.

According to The Sun Chronicle, police have found a 2013 black Chevy Suburban with Rhode Island license plates which was wanted for fingerprints in connection to the suspected homicide.
