NAPLES, Fla. - A death investigation is underway in East Naples after a body was found in brush on the side of a road Saturday night.

Collier County deputies say the body was alongside US 41 East and Pine Street. 
They discovered the body after getting a call from a neighbor, who reported smelling a foul odor. 
The body is badly decomposed so the person's identity is still unknown. It is still unclear if foul play was involved.
An autopsy will be conducted within the next few days. 
Anyone with information is asked to call CCSO at 252-9300.
