Foul play is suspected after a detective discovered a body in Mount Pleasant.

According to Major Jim Brady, the body was discovered just off of McGrath Darby Boulevard around 8:30 Monday night just down from a power station.

Officials said a detective found the body while searching the area as part of an on-going investigation. Brady declined to comment on any information about which case the body may be related to.

"We are trying to determine the circumstances of the body being found here, and the Coroner's office is assisting us with that," Major Brady said.
