Fairfax County police are investigating a dead body discovered near Huntley Meadows Park in the Hybla Valley area.

The body was found in “a wooded area” in the 7900 block of Janna Avenue, the Fairfax County Police Department said on Twitter this afternoon (Tuesday).

Due to the condition of the body, which detectives believe has been outside for some time, it will likely take a while for police to identify the person and determine a cause of death, FCPD spokesperson Second Lt. Jason Chandler told FFXnow.

Police were alerted to the body’s presence by a community member, who called it in, according to Chandler.
