Youth’s Body Found Near School

Authorities are investigating after the body of a minor was found near a south-central Kansas school playground.

Sedgwick County sheriff’s Lt. Lin Dehning says that the juvenile’s death appears to be a suicide. The body was discovered Thursday morning near an elementary school in Haysville.

The sheriff says the death had nothing to do with the school, and the juvenile, who was not identified, did not attend school in the Haysville school district.
