Texarkana, Texas, police detectives investigate the scene where a body was found Friday, Aug. 12, 2016 behind a vacant building in the 3100 block of South Lake Drive.

A body found Friday morning behind a vacant building had no obvious signs of foul play, said Sgt. Geoff Lewis, Texarkana, Texas, Police Department spokesman.

The body, however, has been sent for an autopsy and TTPD is conducting a death investigation.

A man and woman mowing grass discovered the body about 10:37 a.m. Friday in the 3100 block of South Lake Drive.

The building is across from Liberty Square Shopping Center and U-Store-It.

Lewis said the person had been dead quite some time, and investigators may not have much additional information until after the autopsy.

"It was in a pretty decomposed state," Lewis said.

Police did not immediately release information on the gender, race or age of the person.
