Police: body in Bristol woods was there for months
BRISTOL, Conn.—The chief medical examiner's office is trying to identify a person whose body was lying in a wooded area of Bristol for several months before being discovered this week.
The medical examiner's office will be performing an autopsy on the body that was found off Old Wolcott Road on Wednesday by a local resident who was walking his dog through the woods. Bristol police say the amount of decomposition indicated the person died several months ago.
Local police called in state police officials to help with the investigation.
Authorities don't know who the person was, but believe the body is that of a man.
