ORLANDO, Fla. - A passerby discovered a body early Wednesday in Orlando, and the death is being investigated as a homicide, police said.

Orlando police said the passerby spotted the body at 1:39 a.m. on the side of the road near Andros Place and Avenue C, west of Orlando International Airport.

Officers went to the area and found a male's body, police said.

"The murderers didn't even take the time to try and cover up what they did, they just dropped the man on the side of the road where he was left to die," said Carmen Morales, who lives nearby. "I've been here for 18 years and thank God it's been a safe place, but lately it's been a little wild."

The discovery comes two months after a body was found in a wooded area near the same location.

The severely decomposed remains were found Nov. 19. It's not known if the remains were ever identified.
