Frozen body found near north Wichita construction site
Wichita police detectives are working to identify a white male whose body was discovered Wednesday morning near the construction site of the new National Guard Readiness Center southeast of K-96 and I-135.
A construction worker was walking in the area when he made the discovery in some grass near a roadway. The body was found shortly before 9 a.m. It wasn't clear how the man may have died.
"At this point, we haven't dealt with the body enough to determine whether there was trauma or anything like that," said Wichita Police Capt. Rusty Leeds, near the scene of the discovery.
Detectives will treat the case as a suspicious death until they know more.
The Readiness Center is being built on a 45-acre plot that will eventually be the site of a law enforcement training center and Highway Patrol Troop F Headquarters. It's more than a mile west of the Kansas Humane Society at K-96 and Hillside.
