Authorities on Cape Cod are investigating a mutilated body found at a beach in Sandwich.
Cape and Island District Attorney Michael O'Keefe said Thursday that a passer-by found the body at about 8 p.m. Wednesday at Town Neck Beach.
The district attorney said the body appeared to have been brought to the site from somewhere else and investigators are trying to determine where the person may have been killed.
Authorities are asking anyone who may have been in the area of the beach from Monday to Wednesday to report any suspicious vehicles or activity they may have noticed.
Sandwich police and state police assigned to the district attorney's office are investigating.
