WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC) -

Police found a body in a field just east of Bill's Grill Road in West Memphis, Arkansas on Wednesday morning.

A driver spotted the body around 8:30 a.m., about a quarter of a mile west of Southland Park.

Police have not identified the man or determined his cause of death. Until they do, it is being investigated as a homicide. The body was turned over to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner.

"It's just a bunch of farmland. Nothing really out here," said Eric Kinney, a nearby farmer. "We just got a notification on our phone and we just kind wanted to see what is going on."

If you have any information that can help with the investigation, call West Memphis Police Department at 870-735-1210.
