A partially decomposed body was discovered Thursday morning at a recycling plant in Fayetteville.
Cumberland County Sheriff deputies were called out to Pratt Industries at 3780 Owen Drive shortly before 8:30 a.m. An employee reported seeing a body lying in a pile of cardboard boxes.
Authorities have not identified the body, but they say it appears to be female. The remains will be sent to the state medical examiner's office in Raleigh.
No other details are available at this time.
Family members say the man who fired the shots was not the same Andrew "Jay" Michaelis they knew.
