Martinsburg Police report a clarification on misinformation about a body being found.

There were no human remains found in or near the King Street apartment complex.

Rumors of such began circulating after an investigation of a domestic disturbance on December 26.

With the arrest of one individual and another receiving medical attention for a cut on their hand that issue was resolved.

At this time in the investigation the origin of the misinformation is not clear as authorities continue to track the source.

In an act of transparency the Martinsburg Police Department wanted the public to know that no human remains were found at any time.
