Police in Nether Providence Township have been called to investigate the discovery of a headless body in a creek behind a condominium complex, according to police.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said the badly decomposed body of a man was recovered by investigators this morning from a bed of rocks at the rear of the Crum Creek Valley Condominiums at 800 Avondale Road, Wallingford, Nether Providence Township.
The head and a noose were recovered by investigators on the other side of the creek, said the source who was not authorized to speak for publication.
"The body of a male was found in the river," the source said. "It was very decomposed, so it's hard to say the race, but it appears to be a black gentleman."
