Body found under bridge in south Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Police in Little Rock are investigating the discovery of a man's body near Interstate 30 as a homicide.

Lt. Terry Hastings says the body shows signs of severe trauma and apparently had been there several days before being found Monday afternoon. A truck driver spotted the body on the city's south side and called police about 2:15 p.m. Tuesday.

The man's name has not been released. Police say only that he is black and appears to be in his late teens or early 20s.
