SEARCY, Ark. (KAIT) - A body found behind a Searcy home has been ruled by the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory as death by medical conditions.

The identity of the man has not yet been released.

On Sunday, Searcy Police responded to a creek behind Barksdale Drive around 4:30 p.m. when officers arrived, they found a deceased human body.

It’s not known how long the body had been there, Hernadez said. He added it could have been there for several weeks or months.
