MILLINGTON, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Shelby County Sheriff's deputies are trying to identify the body of a man found in a wooded area near Martinwest Drive in Millington, which is near Navy and Martin roads.

Investigators said hunters discovered the body around 5 p.m. on Tuesday and called the sheriff's office.

They said the biggest challenges they face while investigating the unidentified body are the dense woods and ditches surrounding the area where the body was found.

Deputies have not positively identified the body; they do not suspect foul play at this time.

"We can't determine yet, but at this point it will more so be the elements," said Capt. Cecil D. Booker. "It was cold on that day and the temperatures have been dropping steadily."

The body will be sent to the West Tennessee Medical Examiner for further investigation.

FOX13 News will continue to update this story as details are made available.
