On the surface it seems very suspicious, but officials say the investigation is still in early stages.

Tuesday, Yakima County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a barn on property off the Old Naches Highway for a report of a body buried in a barn. They didn't say who tipped them off or how they found out.

When they began to search the property, located at 523 Old Naches Highway, they were greeted with a strong smell of human decomposition. They're working to dig up the corpse, and interviewing the property owner. More information is expected to be released soon. The identity of the person is not yet known.

Sounds like something right out of CSI.
