An investigation is underway after Carrboro Police discovered a deceased individual “in an advanced state of decomposition” on Wednesday.
Authorities said they do not suspect foul play.
The body was discovered when personnel from the town fire and zoning departments were checking on the stability of a structure on Roberts Street, according to law enforcement. Police said that the town personnel “noticed that the residence was unsecure and requested police assistance in checking the house.”
The remains were sent to the Medical Examiner’s officer to confirm the individual’s identity.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
