Man sees shoes sticking out of dirt pile, finds decomposing body

(Patrick Thomas | abc3340.com)

A trucking worker found a decomposing body underneath a bridge in Birmingham on Wednesday afternoon, ABC 33/40's Partrick Thomas confirmed.

The trucking worker, who keeps dirt for his business under Carraway Boulevard, stumbled upon the body during a routine check on the dirt levels. After noticing a pair of shoes sticking out, he approached and smelled a "horrific scent," which led to the discovery.

Birmingham Police Sergeant Johnny Williams is calling the death "unclassified" until the Jefferson County Coroner releases its report.
