Body of missing Alabama man found

TOWN CREEK, Ala. (AP) - Officials in Lawrence County say the body of a man who disappeared during a dogighting raid in December has been found.

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell says the body of 30-year-old Justin Fuqua of Leighton was discovered Sunday on the shoreline of Town Creek at Doublehead Resort.

The TimesDaily reports Mitchell said an autopsy will be performed and his department has asked the Alabama Bureau of Investigation to investigate, because the sheriff's office was involved in the raid.

Nine people were arrested Dec. 19 after authorities got information from the Limestone County Sheriff's Office of a possible dog fight outside of Town Creek.

The sheriff said agents found an arena with lights.

Two pit bulldogs were fighting inside.
