A North Carolina man was arrested in Carter County, Tennessee Monday afternoon in the Fish Springs area.

WBIR reports investigators said they found a human body in his car.

The High Point Police Department contacted CCSO earlier Monday afternoon with information that 24-year-old Michael Louis Cadogan may be transporting a body through Carter County.

A deputy saw Cadogan's vehicle, stopped it, and took Cadogan into custody.

With a warrant, investigators searched the vehicle and discovered the body of 19-year-old Gianna Rose Delgado, a High Point University student, inside.

The school released a statement saying the student, who did not live on campus, passed away due to what police are investigating as possible domestic violence at a private, unaffiliated apartment complex.

The suspect is not a student and is in police custody.

Cadogan has been charged with abuse of a corpse, with possible homicide charges pending from High Point Police.

Cadogan is being held in the Carter County Detention Center with no bond.
