CAMPBELL - Law enforcement authorities are seeking the public's help in determining the final days of a man found dead along a roadway.

A person picking up aluminum cans Wednesday afternoon along WW Highway a half mile north of Campbell, discovered the body of Damon R. Allen, 37, of Campbell in a concrete drainage ditch.

An investigation of the death is being conducted by the Dunklin County Major Case Squad, which consists of members of the Dunklin County Sheriff's Office, Dunklin County Prosecutors Office, Missouri Highway Patrol, and Kennett and Malden police.

Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder said details of the death would not be released until after an autopsy, which had been scheduled for Wednesday.

The body was found in a deep area and is estimated to have been there 48 to 72 hours. The death is being investigated as an accident or possible homicide.

Anyone seeing Allen within the last week should contact the Dunklin County Sheriff's Department at 573-888-2409.
