The sheriff’s office said deputies found the body near the 900 block of Quentin Avenue South in of Lakeland, Minn., after responding to a report made just after 11:30 a.m.

The deputies were not able to determine the identity at the scene. The body, which was in a “significant state of decomposition,” is now with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Authorities did not say if the body belonged to a man or a woman.

This incident is under investigation.
