Deputies are conducting a mysterious death investigation in Douglas County.

They were called to Highway 67 and Rampart Range Road Tuesday morning just before 8.

Hunters stumbled across a body and called 911. Deputies began examining the scene but they weren't able to determine if the remains belong to a human or animal.

The body has been weathered.

Police say they'd be shocked if an answer came back Tuesday.
