Bizarre text message leads to police probe

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Police in Tennessee were investigating a bizarre text message that posed the question “OK, I hid the body… now what?”

The Putnam County Sheriff's Department says two people received that message last week, but told deputies they didn't know the sender.

The Cookeville Herald-Citizen reported that Cpl. Tony Branch tried to call the person who sent the text message, but received a message saying the number no longer worked.

Branch wrote in a report that he sent a text to the number and got a response saying a friend had taken the phone and “sent out some stupid text.”

Branch tried to track down the owner of the number, but had not been able to do so by the end of the week.
