ANDALUSIA, AL (WSFA) -

Authorities in Covington County are working to gain some answers in a cold case by exhuming a body from an Andalusia cemetery.

Investigators are not releasing many details about the crime, the victim or the suspect.

They will say the body is being exhumed from the Adellum Cemetery in order for evidence to be collected in a cold case homicide.

"What I will say is we came here specifically looking for a thing and we recovered that thing," said Covington County District Attorney Walt Merrell.

DA Merrell said he believes what they found will be productive in making an arrest in the case.
