The Montgomery County Sheriff's office is investigating its first homicide of the year.
38-year old Michael David Grimes' body was found in what used to be the old Pettiway Junk-Yard Nightclub Tuesday morning.
The body was found off Stokes Road in north Montgomery. That road is in a secluded area and it eventually dead ends.
"Foul play is involved and we're going to work this straight-up murder," said Montgomery County Sheriff D.T. Marshall.
Investigators believe Grime's was probably murdered at a different location and then brought to the junkyard sometime Monday night.
The landowner told the Sheriff's department he never heard anything throughout the night.
Investigators say Grimes' car was found on the Alabama River Parkway.
