MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) - Marshall, Texas, police have identified the man whose body was found Friday evening.

They say he is Charles Lee Anthony. Police did not release his age nor his place of residence.

Investigators say they identified him based on identification found in his clothing.

Anthony's body was discovered in a wooded area behind Brookshire's grocery in the 900 block of East Pinecrest.

Police still are investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.

Patrol units were called to the 900 block of E. Pinecrest Dr. just after 6 p.m., where they confirmed there was a "deceased male."

Investigators with Marshall police's patrol and criminal investigation bureaus still were on the scene as of 7:30 p.m.

Anthony's is the third body found in 24 hours in the ArkLaTex.

Earlier Friday, a man mowing grass outside a business in Texarkana, TX found a body behind a building.

On Thursday night, a passerby followed the scent of a foul odor in the 1100 block of Looney St. near Pierre Ave. in Shreveport, which led him to the discovery of a body in a drainage ditch behind St. Paul United Methodist Church. That man has been identified as 25-year-old John Robinson.
