Body found in farm field Friday morning in Genoa

GENOA – A body was found in a farm field Friday morning in Genoa, DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies said.

Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan confirmed Friday that a farmer discovered a body in his field west of the Ellwood Greens subdivision in Genoa about 8:50 a.m. Friday and called police.

Upon arrival, deputies confirmed the person was dead. They did not release any identifying information.

The sheriff’s office said it has no reason to believe there is any threat to the public.

Sullivan said the DeKalb County Coroner’s Office has scheduled an autopsy for Monday, after which more information will be available.

Deputies also are in the process of notifying family members, and the investigation is ongoing.
