UPDATE: The Moore County Sheriff's Office say that the autopsy on Bullock revealed that he died of gunshot wounds.
The death of a Southern Pines man who was reported missing more than a week ago is now being investigated as a homicide, officials with the Moore County Sheriff's Office said.
Neil Godfrey of the Moore County Sheriff's Office told another local media outlet "the circumstances around the way we found the body pretty much indicated it was a homicide."
He added that when the result of the autopsy came back his office was able to " pursue the case as a homicide."
The body of Lance Bullock, 34, of Southern Pines was found Monday in the Glendon area of Moore County.
Moore County Sheriff's deputies were in the Glendon area investigating some recently reported break-ins when they came upon the body, Godfrey said.
