Body Found Hanging In Vacant Lot

KSCB News - July 6, 2016 3:18 pm

According to officials on the scene, a body has been found this morning,at approximately 9:48am hanging in an Evergreen tree, in a vacant lot behind the VFW. The body, dressed in a heavy coat and long pants, apparently has been hanging for quite some time as some of the appendages appeared to be skeletonized. The body, which was obscured by heavy foliage and tree branches, was discovered by an individual who was mowing in the area, after he was alerted by his dog. After cutting several branches and removing heavy cover, the body has been removed from the tree and taken to a local mortuary. It appears that there was no identification on the body, Preliminary reports point to a suicide, however the case remains under investigation by the Seward County Sheriff’s Office and the KBI. Anyone with information or possible identification, is asked to please contact the Seward County Sheriff’s Office at 620-309-2000. KSCB News will continue to follow the investigation.
