A body found in Wildcat Creek over the weekend has been identified as that of a Manhattan man missing since late February.
The Riley County Police Department said Thursday that following an autopsy it was determined to be 39-year-old Robert Weixelman. He hadn’t been seen by his family since February 21.
RCPD’s Emergency Dispatch Center received a 911 call Saturday from a person canoeing in the creek, stating they found what appeared to be a body in the 1100 block of Temple Lane, south of Manhattan. Following the autopsy, detectives and crime scene investigators confirmed the identification and determined there was no foul play suspected.
RCPD was assisted by the Manhattan Fire Department Rescue Team.
