Body found, 7.3.19

Police staged on Cornhusker Highway near the Interstate 180 interchange following a report of a dead body found in the area on Wednesday morning.

Lincoln police didn't see any obvious signs of foul play in the death of a man found at the Cornhusker Highway interchange on Interstate 180, a department spokeswoman said. 

A state worker mowing the ditches on the southwest side of the interchange called 911 at 10:32 a.m. after seeing the body along a fence line, Officer Angela Sands said.

The man's death remained under investigation Wednesday afternoon, and police had not identified him.
