Sadly this is the second story this year of deceased individuals that have been discovered by law enforcement covered in the Crossroads area.
On July 23rd of this year, we covered a story of a male body that had been dumped on Colletoville Rd, presumed to be a casualty of human trafficking in the area. The body was actually discovered when someone called the male's family member to give them GPS coordinates to help law enforcement locate the body.
