Spotsylvania County authorities are investigating a suspicious death after a decomposed body was found along Interstate 95.

Capt. Jeff Pearce of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office said a man was walking along the southbound lanes of I-95 looking for hub caps or other scrap metal around 7 p.m. and found a body.

The badly decomposed body was found in a ditch behind the railing near the 125 mile marker, just south of the Massaponax exit, Pearce said.

Police were unable to identify it as male or female and it was turned over to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond for examination. No other identifying information was found around the body, he said.

No more details were available last night, he said.
