The body was found near a lot next to McKinney Tire on Harkrider Street.
A car with California plates was parked nearby for several days and may belong to the person whose body they found.
"The body looked as if it had been there for nearly a week, but it's been very hot. It was badly decomposed," says Latresha Woodruff with the Conway Police Department.
Police have not identified the body, and the county coroner is working to establish a cause of death, though police didn't notice obvious signs of trauma.
