Yarmouth Police received word on Wednesday that the body of an apparently homeless man was found by a hunter in a wooded area on Willow Street in West Yarmouth, adjacent to the airport.
A statement from the YPD says officers met with the hunter, who guided them through a heavily overgrown area where a campsite had been set up. A badly decomposed body was found inside a tent.
Police say the body may have been there approximately one year.....it was removed by the Medical Examiner’s Office and has since been positively identified as a 56 year old man from the Cape Cod area. His name has not been released.
Yarmouth and State Police are investigating.
