The Huntsville Cemetery is located on the point of Pineview Reservoir in Huntsville. There's only one road in and one road out. But deputies say because the reservoir is low, it's possible to get to the cemetery by snowmobile.

"There's a couple deputies up there that are gonna stay with this scene; and it's still a crime scene, there's still an investigation going, and folks will be working on this through the night," said sheriff's Lt. Matthew Bell.

Though authorities are investigating this as a suspicious death, they are not releasing any details on what is pointing them in that direction.

The sheriff's office has not identified the victim, nor has a cause of death been determined. The state medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy.
