BILLINGS- The Carbon County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide with the help of Montana Department of Criminal Investigation. 

The crime happened south of Red Lodge along Highway 212. 

As a precautionary measure, Red Lodge schools were canceled early Thursday morning.

Those with the CCSO say there is no threat to the public at this time and the investigation is ongoing.  

In addition, the Sheriffs Office is asking that folks stay away from the area along Highway 212, south of the East Side road access points, so that the investigation can be completed in a timely and efficient manner.

The office plans to release more details later.
