Body discovered in northeastern Vigo County

Sunday, March 14, 2010

VIGO  COUNTY -- Indiana State Police Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators are currently investigating the finding of a body in rural northeastern Vigo County.

The body was found clothed and partially decomposed, in a wooded area adjacent to 11236 Grotto Ave.

The location was approximately 1.8 miles north of United States 40 on the Clay and Vigo county line.

Indiana State Police detectives are not speculating at this time the identity, age, gender, or cause of death.

However, there are similarities in clothing to an active missing person's case currently being investigated by ISP detectives.

A full autopsy is scheduled for the afternoon Monday, at Terre Haute Regional Hospital. Dr. Roland Kohr will be the attending pathologist.

The body was reported to the Vigo County Sheriff's Department at 1:41 p.m., Sunday, by a person walking in the wooded area.

Sheriff's investigators were aware of state police detectives conducting a missing person's case from the area and requested ISP at the scene.

Officials could not release any more information at press time.

Weather and other elements can make a search difficult. I remember a few years back there was a guy that hung himself over in Seelyville on the Plumbers and Steamfitters property and they search numerous time, with and without dogs and never found him. Then one day a (I think mushroom hunter) found him in underbrush and had been there for months. I dont know all the facts of this case, but dont speculate until they get all the facts. From what I have seen and heard on the news it very possible this young man went into the woods and possibly died of any number of things. Please wait until the autopsy results before you start spouting off. No matter what this was someones son, brother, husband, father or friend and those people are still here to read your hurtful words.
