Body found in basement of Hutchinson home

October 6, 2018

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Police say a decomposing body has been found in the basement of a Hutchinson home after the tenant complained about a bad smell.

The Hutchinson News reports the body was found Thursday evening. It was determined to be a male, but no identification was found and the tenant does not know who it is.

Police Capt. Troy Hoover says investigators found no signs of a break-in or a struggle. He says the man might have been a transient.

Either the landlord or the tenant found the body while searching for the source of the smell.

Hoover said police are waiting on an autopsy.

Police have no active missing person reports that might match the individual.
