Dunn County (WQOW) -- Officials are investigating a homicide after the body of an Eau Claire man was found in rural Dunn County. 

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office has not released the name of the victim, 24, but said a suspect has been identified and charges are likely to be filed sometime this week. They do not believe there is any current threat to the public, because the suspect is being detained for other reasons. 

The sheriff's office said the man's body was found on Friday, in a car in rural Springbrook township. The Dunn County Medical Examiner pronounced the man dead at the scene and authorities said it was clear his injuries were not self-inflicted. 

An autopsy was completed by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office in St. Paul on Saturday. 

Authorities said the investigation continues as more potential witnesses may be identified and interviewed, and no other details can be released at this time.
