Authorities are investigating a dead body found off Highway 21 East this morning.
Just shortly before 9 a.m. a truck driver noticed the body just off the side of the highway. He then stopped a short distance from the scene and called 911.
The body was discovered near Sand Creek.
Officials have set up a perimeter while they collect evidence. Foul play is unknown at this time. DPS has shut Highway 21 down to one lane as the investigation continues so drivers are asked to slow down and use caution.
KWKT has a crew on the scene and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
