A dead body was found Saturday afternoon near a boat ramp in the Cape Fear River in Fayetteville.
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said the body was discovered after 2 p.m. in the river off Wilmington Highway.
Authorities could not identify the body as it was too badly decomposed.
The body has been sent to the medical examiner’s office for further examination, authorities said.
