A body was found Friday inside a black pickup truck in suburban Delray Beach, near the southeast corner of Lyons Road and West Atlantic Avenue.

Workers in the area spotted the pickup on undeveloped land, described as a wooded swampy area, and smelled a strong odor. They immediately called 911 and responding deputies found a badly decomposed body inside.

The medical examiner, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office crime scene unit and a homicide detective responded to the scene. 

It is unclear at this time how long the pickup and the individual have been there.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
