WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Wilmington police have confirmed a body has been found in one of the storage units at the SecurCare Self Storage facility on the 400 block of S. College Road.

Detectives were on the scene until around 8:30 p.m. investigating the area and the cause of death. Foul play is not suspected, according to Lt. Greg Willett with WPD.

“If it’s not like a witnessed death or a known medical cause, we treat it basically as an unknown cause,” said Willett. “And what we do at that time is, we will secure the area, we will set up a crime scene, investigators will be notified, they will come out, they will begin their investigation [and] talk to any potential witnesses.”

Willett says the body was likely in the unit for more than a day before officers found it.

“At this time, speaking to investigators, we don’t suspect foul play,” said Willett. “But the medical examiner will take the case and an autopsy will be performed, and certainly we’ll know more after that.”

No other details have been provided at this time.

This developing story will be updated as more details become available.
