The body of a middle-aged white man was discovered by a logging crew in a wooded area behind an abandoned building on Industrial Road.
Police have not determined the man's identity nor do they know how he died.
An autopsy will be done.
"The body had been exposed to the elements for quite some time. Plus, it was in a watery environment. It's hard to describe the condition of the body," says Police Chief John Powell.
If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call Dothan Police at 615-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 793-7000.
