WHITELAND —The Johnson County Coroner's Office says it's investigating after a dead body was found Tuesday in a field near a motel.
The deceased male was discovered about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, near the Wishing Well Motel, 511 S. U.S. Highway 31, according to Johnson County Coroner Mike Pruitt.
The decedent was identified as Dennis Brown, 39, of Whiteland, Pruitt said Wednesday, adding that there were no signs indicating foul play.
However, the cause of Brown's death has not yet been determined. It will be determined once toxicology results are complete, which could take up to three weeks, Pruitt said.
Brown had last been seen five days ago in the area where he was located.
Pruitt asked that anyone with more information contact the Whiteland Police Department at 317-535-8100 or the coroner's office at 317-738-6031.
