Work Continues To Identify Body Found In Clayton Creek

Clayton Body Found 4As of Monday morning, the NC Medical Examiner’s Office has still not identified the body of a man who was found in a creek June 4th near the Amelia Village Apartments off Amelia Church Road in Clayton.

An adult and two teenagers were headed to the creek to fish when they discovered the badly decomposed body.
