SPRING HILL – Around 1:00 p.m. today Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Family Dollar on Deltona Blvd, after reports that a body was discovered in an adjacent wooded area.
Major Case Detectives and the State Medical Examiner will take over the case to determine if there is any sign of foul play.
I spoke to “Rick,” a witness at the scene who said he responded to the area to try and help the man before deputies cordoned off the area. Rick described the victim as an older man who lived in the wooded area.
According to a Family Dollar employee, a lot of homeless people live in that wooded area and often purchase items in her store. The employee says she probably knows who passed away.
