A body was found bound in duct tape and wrapped in a tarp Thursday in Escambia County, and the victim’s neighbor has been charged.

A deputy found the body in a wooded area off Idlewood Drive in southern Escambia County.

The victim, 54-year-old Charles Daniel Locke, had been missing since May 19. Deputies questioned his neighbor, Kalvin Dewayne Allison. They say Allison pushed Locke, who fell and hit his head at his home in the 300 block of Frisco Road.
