Police ID Man Found Dead Near Tracks

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Police in Wichita say a man found dead in a wooded area near railroad tracks had been reported missing days earlier.

Construction workers came across the frozen body Wednesday morning in the northeastern part of the city. Police said Thursday they’ve identified the 34-year-old man, but his name was being withheld while relatives were notified.

Investigators are calling the death suspicious, partly because there were signs the body had been moved from somewhere else. An autopsy was being conducted Thursday.

Police said the man’s girlfriend last saw him Friday at a business in west Wichita. She reported him missing on Sunday.
