Police are investigating an apparent homicide after trappers discovered a body that appeared to have been dumped in the Marathon County town of Spencer, northwest of Marshfield.

Investigators and emergency crews responded at about 2 p.m. Tuesday after trappers working near Abe Lincoln Avenue and Swamp Road discovered a man lying face down with a shirt over his head.

Officials are seeking a black 2005 Chevy Impala bearing the Wisconsin license plate AHT-6900 but have not said what role the vehicle could have played in the death.

Autopsy results are pending. More information is expected on Wednesday.
