The body of an elderly man was discovered June 20 inside a cabin, west of Jumbo Road, overlooking Mill Creek.

Officials at the Izard County Sheriff's Office said the man's body may have been in the cabin for several months. The body was sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiners Office for a positive identification and cause of death.

Officials connected with the investigation said they do not suspect foul play at this time.

Izard County Sheriff Joe Martz said from information collected at the scene, investigators know the man identity. Martz said the man's name is being withheld until his closest relatives, who are possibly living in Colorado, are notified.

The body was discovered by a local property owner.
