Noon update:

Family members have confirmed the body found in the Blair’s community Saturday morning is that of 19-year-old Charles Michael Abbott.

Details are still scarce on Abbott’s death and the events leading up to it. Chuck Abbott, the victim’s uncle, said there are several different stories circulating about his nephew’s death. No two stories have been alike, he said, which is making it difficult to figure out what happened.

Original story:

Few details surround a dead body found Saturday morning in a vehicle in the Blairs community.

According to a news release sent Sunday night, the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office is “working a death investigation.”

The body was found in a vehicle on Chestnut Level Lane in the Blairs community, according to Pittsylvania County Sheriff Mike Taylor.

The investigation is continuing.

“The victim’s body will be transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Roanoke for an autopsy,” the release stated.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office Crimestoppers at (800) 791-0044 or Lt. Corey Webb at (434) 432-7843.
