Beckley, Raleigh County , West Virginia
Investigators said they were working under the assumption that the body discovered in a shallow grave near Beckley Wednesday is that of a Charleston man who has been missing for more than one month.
The body was discovered about 3 p.m. Wednesday decomposing in a shallow grave in a wooded area off of Old Turnpike Road in Harper Heights near Beckley.
Raleigh Sheriff Steve Tanner said they believe this may be the body of Kareem Hunter, 28, of Charleston who was last seen alive on Sept. 23, but are waiting on the medical examiner to positively identify the body.
Investigators were back on the scene Thursday. Eyewitness News Reporter Bob Aaron is in Beckley and will have more at noon on WCHS TV.
