Valencia County Deputies are investigating what they are calling a suspicious death.

Neighbors say the body was found in some type of container.

According to investigators, the body was found at a now-vacant home on Las Mananitas by a person hired to clean up the property. 

They say the body is that of a man in his mid to late 30s, but they are still working on getting a positive ID and cause of death.

Investigators say the man they believe it could be has no apparent link to the home or the people who lived there.

They also say the family moved out several weeks ago. 

OMI will determine how long the man has been dead, but investigators say the decomposition was considerable.
