A body was found Wednesday morning in a wall at an open air flea market in Clover, police said.

Clover Police Chief Randy Grice said police were called to respond to a "strong, foul odor" at the business, and found a body inside a wall at the market.

The body has not yet been identified.

Clover and York County police teams were on site with power tools Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators do not suspect foul play, Grice said in a statement.

Neighbor Thomas Yazvac said he has lived in the area since 2004. He said he was shocked to hear someone was found dead at the flea market across the street from his home.


“It’s kind of frightening to have something happen so close to home like this,” Yazvac said.

The flea market is west of downtown Clover on Kings Mountain Street.
