WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Wichita police are investigating the discovery of a body found near the Arkansas River but don’t believe foul play was involved.
The Wichita Eagle reports the body was lying on the ground next to a tree around 7:30 a.m. Sunday when someone walking along the river found him.
Police spokesman Sgt. Joe Kennedy says a 59-year-old white man was pronounced dead at the scene. The body was taken to the Sedgwick County Regional Forensics Science Center to determine cause of death.
Kennedy says the person may have been homeless. No other details were being released.
