Police on Monday released the name of a man who was found dead last week behind an Oxford shopping center.
According to Capt. L.G. Owens, the man was 37-year-old Corey Edwin Gossett of Anniston.
Owens said police determined that Gossett had been behind the store since June 7 based on surveillance camera footage.
Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown said authorities believe Gossett died of natural causes. Owens said Gossett’s body was sent to a laboratory at the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville for an autopsy, and police were waiting Monday for the results.
