Authorities are investigating a body that was found north of Lufkin over the weekend.

It happened on Royce Oliver Rd, just off of County Road 2021, around 3:30 pm on Sunday.

Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches tells KETK that they originally believed the call was a hit and run accident. However, when they arrived on scene they decided to investigate the incident as a homicide.

Details surrounding the discovery are extremely limited, but Sheriff Sanches says that the body appears to be that of a woman in her 40s. She has not yet been identified, and her body has been sent for autopsy.

Authorities say that nobody has called about a missing person, and they have received no tips about the case.

If you have any information about the incident, please contact the Angelina County Sheriffs Office.
