A 68-year-old Wichita man was found dead on a rural Sedgwick County road early Monday, according to a Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman. Foul play is not suspected, Lt. Lin Dehning said.
Dehning said deputies were called at about 7 a.m. to a rural location near 47th Street South and 127th Street East, which is southeast of Wichita.
Dehning said deputies discovered a man’s body and a vehicle on 127th Street. The body had been burned, Dehning said. The Sedgwick County Coroner’s Office has not released a preliminary report on the cause of death.
Dehning said law enforcement authorities are not currently looking for a suspect and that fire investigators had been called to the scene.
