A body was found behind New Hope Church in Abbeyville Thursday.

Police believe it could be connected to a case of a missing Eufala woman.

An investigator following that case went looking for her behind churches on Highway 95, because she liked to travel down that road.

That's when he discovered the body.

Bones and clothing were all that was left.

Police are hopeful DNA and dental records will help to identify the body.

Henry County Sheriff's Office and the Dothan Crime Scene Unit are trying to identify the remains of body found by an individual.

They're going through the crime scene trying to recover evidence.

Henry County Sheriff William Maddox said the individual "came across the remains of this person and he called us and that's where we're at now... It's probably going to be criminal from the results of where the body's at so we're not connecting it to any case right now until we get through with the investigation."
