LOVE COUNTY, Okla. -- Investigators in Marietta are closer to identifying a body found in Marietta on Monday. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is trying to confirm the identity of 43-year-old Johnny Fuller of Healdton through dental records.

Investigators say the identification process could take up to a week or longer.

The body was found behind the Dollar Tree Distribution Center by workers who were clearing brush Monday afternoon. Authorities think the body had been there for at least two months.

State investigators say they have not found any evidence of trauma to the body but are still looking to determine if foul play was involved.

Love County authorities said Monday that the medical examiners were taking the body to Oklahoma City, where an autopsy will be performed.
