MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — Police in the central Kansas town of McPherson have identified a man found dead outside a storage shed as a 26-year-old resident of the community.
The death of Ernest Charles Miller is being investigated as suspicious, although police have not yet classified it as a homicide.
Miller’s identity was released Friday, one day after two people passing by spotted the body. The McPherson Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1dB6Fuv ) an autopsy concluded Miller died of blunt trauma and suffocation.
Police had also been looking for Miller’s car and found it Thursday night at his home.
