Shelby Township police are investigating after a body was found early Tuesday morning. 

Deputy Chief Mark Coil confirmed the investigation but declined to provide further details, pending next-of-kin notification.

"We're currently working a scene where we have recovered a body in the area of Hixson and Barclay," Coil said.

A body was found near Barclay and Hixson avenues in Shelby Township.

That's north of Auburn and east of Dequindre.

"I have detectives on scene finishing up an investigation that happened last night," Coil said. 

Additional details will be released later, Coil said.
