    The body of a man, believed to be the victim of a homicide, was found alongside a Lincoln County roadway late Wednesday night.
     
    Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, said Lincoln County deputies requested the OSBI’s assistance and four agents were en route to the scene southwest of Wellston.
     
    “They’ll process the crime scene and try to identify the victim,” Brown said, adding agents could be on the scene into the overnight hours.
     
    The location of the crime scene is about 1.5 miles east of the Oklahoma/Lincoln County line, Brown said.
     
    It was believed a passerby discovered the man’s body, she said.
