JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a death on the Northside at 1300 Carvill Ave.

Detectives do suspect foul play and are investigating the case as a homicide, according to JSO.

Investigators said a Florida Highway Patrol trooper was driving in the area, around 3:30 a.m., when he saw what he believed to be an arm laying on the dirt road. The trooper investigated and found the body of an African American male in his early 20's.

It did not appear as if the man was killed at that location, said Michael Paul, JSO Homicide Sergeant.

Investigators are working to determine the man's identity and cause of death.
