May 23, 2016

The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a body found Friday between Tonganoxie and McLouth.

Undersheriff Jim Sherley said Monday the sheriff’s office was working with the medical examiner’s office on the case.

Sherley said as of Monday afternoon he couldn’t confirm whether the death was suspicious.

“As it sits right now, we don’t have anything that would indicate a suspicious death,” he said. “We’re kind of working it by the numbers at this point."

Sherley declined to release many details about the investigation at this point, but noted where the investigation was currently.

He said the remains of the body were found Friday near Kansas Highway 16 north of Parallel Road.
