A hunter found the body wrapped inside a carpet in a heavily wooded area. The carpet was bound on all four sides with the body wrapped inside, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutors office.
Prosecutors believe that the victim was killed execution style, but won't comment on the cause of death.
The still unidentified victim appears to be a white man in his 30s or 40s who was about 6 feet tall and 200 to 250 pounds.
The body was located on a trail about a 1.5 miles from Rt. 322 (Black Horse Pike).
It appears that the body was dropped in the area between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on December 8.
Officials are asking for the public's help in identifying the dead body and figuring out who killed the man and then dumped the body.
