LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) A body found in a Lawrence creek last month has been identified as that of a 57-year-old man.
Two people walking in Burcham Park discovered the decomposed remains Aug. 31, in a small creek near a bridge over the Kansas River.
Police said Wednesday the Douglas County coroner has identified the man as Lawrence resident Mark Kemberling. Officers said there was no sign of foul play, but the cause of death may not be known for several weeks.
Investigators also don’t know how long Kemberling had been dead. They’re asking to hear from anyone with information about the case.
