Because of the location of the body, authorities say they will investigate the death as suspicious.

On Friday, Police Chief Charles Ashbeck said police had “a good idea” of the person’s identity, but were waiting for the results of an autopsy. The medical examiner is hoping to identify the person with DNA, according to Ashbeck, a process that could take months.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call Investigator Pete Jakowski at 608-392-0285.
