The Wake County Sheriff’s Office found a body of a man off Old Stage Road on Wednesday, temporarily shutting down the road to traffic.
A passing driver reported the sighting of a body near the Green Spring Valley Mobile Park Home to the sheriff’s office at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said.
Crews searched for the body but were unable to locate it.
The sheriff’s office received another phone call at noon Wednesday reporting a body at the same location.
Deputies returned to the location and found the body, now identified as Kevin Edward Thomas, 34, whose address was unknown as of 6 p.m. Wednesday. An investigation is ongoing.
Harrison said it’s not clear whether the death resulted from a hit and run, wreck, natural causes or if he was thrown out of a vehicle.
The road was expected to reopen to at least one lane of traffic around 4 p.m.
