Authorities discovered a body lying on a rural road near NE 150th and Pottawatomie Rd. in Lincoln County, Wednesday evening.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation confirmed that they do have agents on the case. The body was located on a rural road southwest of Wellston and about a mile and a half east of the Oklahoma County line.

Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty says two men say they were driving east on northeast 150th Street when they saw a dead body 50 yards off the side of the road.

"Right now we have to process the scene, we've got a lot of evidence," he said.  

Dougherty says evidence at the scene points to foul play.  He says it appears the victim was killed somewhere else, and then his body dragged to the rural road where it was found.

OSBI investigators say the victim appears to be male, but no other information is known at this time.
