Man Found Dead Near Railroad Tracks

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Police in Wichita are trying to identify a man found dead near railroad tracks in the northeastern part of the city.

The Wichita Eagle reports police believe someone placed the body near the tracks but they don’t know when.

Workers heading to a construction site came across the body shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday. Police Lt. Doug Nolte says an autopsy will show the cause of the death, but authorities are treating it as suspicious for now.

A homeless shelter is located not far from where the body was found.
