WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) – The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate a body discovered Wednesday.
The Sheriff’s Office is calling it a death investigation after the body was found down Cisterna Road in a wooded area Wednesday. It may be connected to a missing person’s case.
Bailey Police confirmed James Graham Jr., 52, was reported missing last week. Then Saturday, his car was found burning near Buckhorn Landing.
Police aren’t clear on whether the car was set on fire or caught fire because of some sort of mechanical issue.
Authorities have not confirmed if the body was that of Graham. But Bailey Police say they have closed the missing person case.
