Deceased Individual Discovered In Smith County

Smith County Public Information Officer Sharon Wolters tells KD-Country 94 and Z-96.3 News that the body of a deceased individual was discovered around noon on Wednesday, March 7 in Smith County. No further information was released by the Smith County Sheriff’s Department, deferring to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation who is in charge of the case.

Unconfirmed reports have been received of a male found dead with no shoes or shirt in an area somewhere south of Lebanon and Hwy. 36 about one mile east of Hwy. 181. We have learned where the individual is likely from, and that he had been working in a nearby county. That information will be released as we receive official confirmation.

Information requests submitted to the KBI by our news department have not yet been answered, and the investigation is presumably ongoing. We will pass additional details along as they are received.
