WASHINGTON CO., Ind. - Authorities in southern Indiana have released the name of an individual associated with the death of a young man in Washington County, who was the subject of a somewhat gruesome missing persons search.

The development came following an autopsy that was performed today (Sunday, October 28) on the body of Jacob Ray Dodson, 22, from the Campbellsburg area of Washington County. The autopsy revealed there were no signs of trauma to the body. The cause of death is unknown at this time. However, toxicology test results are pending and usually take up to six to eight weeks to return.

With the findings of the autopsy, this case is still a death investigation.

Jerry Lee Carson Jr., 47, from the Vallonia area in Washington County, an associate of Jacob Ray Dodson, remains incarcerated at the Washington County Jail on the charges of Obstruction of Justice and False Informing to Police. He was the last known person to see Jacob Ray Dodson alive. After speaking to Jerry Lee Carson Jr., yesterday, detectives from the Indiana State Police placed him under arrest. He was charged with Obstruction of Justice and False Informing to Police. He was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail. Officers were also able to gain enough information to obtain a search warrant to search a property located at 4031 Wheeler Hollow Road, Vallonia, in Washington County.

While searching the property, officers located a body in a duffel style bag located under an abandoned mobile home. The body was positively identified as Jacob Ray Dodson by the Washington County Coroner’s Office. When authorities release more info, we'll post. Be watching
