LOWELL, Ind. -- Crews working on the site of a proposed quarry in northwest Indiana uncovered a mummified body.

The Lake County Sheriff says the mummy could be up to 2,000 years old.

The body's head and torso is distinguished.

It was found in Eagle Creek Township, southeast of Lowell.

Archeologists are now checking out the mummy and it's possible the site could be an old Native American burial ground.

Work on the proposed quarry has been stopped so that crews can continue to look for more remains and artifacts.
