A body found in rural northeast Kansas has been identified as that of an Olathe (oh-LAY’-thuh) man missing since Oct. 20.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday there’s no evidence of criminal activity in the unattended death of 22-year-old Brad Cook. A pedestrian found Cook’s body Tuesday in rural De Soto.

The discovery was made about two miles from where another unattended death was reported this week. In that case, a person was found dead in a carport outside a De Soto apartment complex.

Investigators have not revealed the cause of either death, and say they don’t believe the two cases are connected.
