Indiana State Police say they suspect no foul play after finding a body lying in a dry creek bed Friday night.

Officers were call to County Road 1100 north, just west of County Road 500 East in Sullivan County Friday evening at 7:09 p.m.


A neighbor was riding an all-terrain vehicle in a dry creek bed about 300 yards north of County Road 1100 North when they found a male, in his late 50s to early 60’s, dead in the creek bed.

Police say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but foul play has not been ruled out but they did find several items commonly associated with drug use.

An autopsy is scheduled for today. ISP Detectives say they believe they know the identity of the victim, but are awaiting confirmation from the autopsy before releasing that information.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

The investigation is being conducted by ISP Detectives Mike Taylor and Tony Guinn. Assisting were ISP Crime Scene Investigator Sergeant Kris Fitzgerald, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office and Sullivan County Coroner’s Office.
