Officials say a body found behind the Coakley Middle School Wednesday evening is that of a man, who they believe may have been killed at another location before being left in Norwood.
District Attorney Michael Morrissey told the media there's no reason to believe the crime occurred in Norwood or even at the school and they are now looking for a secondary scene. The body was discovered when a man brought his dog to play in the woods behind the middle school and discovered the remains. Morrissey says the victim suffered "massive trauma."
The Norfolk County District Attorney’s office, along with State Police homicide detectives and Norwood Police are all investigating.
