Police lights

CORDOVA, Ala. (WIAT) – Walker County coroner J.C. Poe says the body found dead in a wooded area Wednesday morning belonged to a man missing since Friday.

The body of 36-year-old Michael Louis McAvoy was found by sheriff’s investigators in a wooded area off of Old Baltimore Road in Cordova.

Poe says the cause of death appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but an autopsy should provide more answers.

CBS42 will provide more information as it becomes available.
