The body was discovered in a cornfield at 10:20 a.m., officials said. 

Police said the suspicious vehicle report and the discovery of the body appear to be linked. 

Marshall School District Administrator Dan Grady told News 3 the high school was put on a soft lockdown Thursday morning. The soft lockdown means students continue class as usual but are not let outside the building.
