Investigation underway after body found in field

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – Fort Wayne Police are trying to figure out how a man ended up dead in a field on the city’s south side Saturday morning.

Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, someone walking in the area spotted the body of an adult man in a cornfield in the 3300 block of Oakwood Drive and called police.

At this point, police are talking to neighbors in the area to find out what may have happened to the man.

Police would not say either way if the investigation was suspicious in nature or not.

The identity, cause, and manner of death will be determined by the Allen County Coroner following an autopsy.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have information regarding this investigation to contact the Fort Wayne Police Departments Detective Bureau at 427-1201 or Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP.
