Wichita Police Say Homeless Man Died Under Bridge

Associated Press - December 30, 2013 10:32 am

The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.

Wichita police are investigating the death of a homeless man, who they say might have frozen to death under a bridge.

Police found the man’s body under the bridge Sunday afternoon after being called to check on his welfare. The man, who is believed to be in his 50s or 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The bridge is just south of Wichita’s Riverside park.

The coroner will determine the man’s cause of death but police say there were no obvious signs of trauma.
