Over the last several days, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has been bombarded with calls regarding “11 bodies” found in the Grove Oak Community.

No such incident has occurred that we are aware of. After checking with surrounding counties, no other agency is aware of any such incident.

If any citizen has discovered 11 bodies, please call us at (256)845-3801. We would like to discuss with them why they did not report this discovery.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the rumor: “We’re not sure where this rumor came from or who started it, but no such discovery in Grove Oak or anywhere else in DeKalb County has been reported to our office.”

“If any such incident had occurred, the matter would have been dealt with quickly and professionally, to include a release to the media,” said Welden.

“God Bless,” said Sheriff Welden.
