Crews ID Body From Frozen Creek

KSAL StaffJanuary 16, 2015

A father and daughter’s late afternoon walk leads to the discovery of a man’s body on the ice in Mulberry Creek.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski met with the media Friday morning with an update on the recovery efforts of a body that was discovered at about 5:30pm Thursday evening.

Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News that crews paused their efforts until daylight hours to work in the icy conditions. “The fire department rescue team that was up there last night was very concerned about the safety of everybody,” Kochanowski said.

“It’s not a solid standing of ice in that whole area. Part of that has water flowing.”

Last night deputies cordoned off the wooded area in the 1900 Block of North 5th Street which is behind the Bosselman Pilot Truck Stop.

Sheriff Kochanowski says there is nothing to indicate foul play in the man’s death who is described as a white male, age 45 to 60 years old.

“We’ll learn more after an autopsy,” he said.

Deputies, who have interviewed people in the area say the clothes on the body may match those of a homeless man who had been staying in the area.

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office said Friday night that the man was 65-year-old Robert Lloyd Basye.
