MCCLAIN COUNTY – Officials are investigating a body found in south Oklahoma.

The body was found around 4:30 p.m. Monday near Dibble in McClain County.

Officials said the death was likely a homicide, because the victim was found beneath a tarp and metal behind a house.

The victim was also reportedly wrapped in bed sheets and covered with panels.

Officials were waiting on a search warrant before releasing a name.

However, they later said the body was so badly decomposed that a medical examiner will have to determine an identity. The body is now at the ME’s office.

There are reportedly two gunshot to the head, but officials are unsure if the house is the crime scene or if the victim was shot elsewhere and dumped there.

The identity is expected to be released Tuesday.
