Kentucky State police found a body that is believed to be connected to a Wisconsin homicide inside a box alongside a Bell County Road on Tuesday.

Authorities in Wisconsin and Georgia called state police about the homicide on Tuesday and told them where the body was thought to be, according to a news release.

State police went to the location on Industrial Road and found two big boxes over an embankment. The body was found in one of the boxes.

Bell County Coroner Jay Steele said the body was that of a man who has not been identified. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

State police said they do not have any information about the homicide in Wisconsin.
