Detectives with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office are investigating the discovery of a body at a recycling plant in Fayetteville.

A statement from the Sheriff's Office said investigators were called to Pratt Industries Thursday morning after an employee reported seeing a body lying in a pile of cardboard boxes.
