FBI identifies body found near Stockton Lake

STOCKTON, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have identified the body of a man found near Stockton Lake.

26-year-old Michael Scott Algiere of Springfield was found dead Sunday in the Crabtree Cove area of Stockton Lake. Two hikers found his body, which authorities believe had been there a couple days.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton says an autopsy has been conducted, but no other information is being released.

The FBI is investigating because Algiere’s body was found on federal land. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Cedar County sheriff’s office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Springfield police are also involved in the investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the FBI in Springfield at 417-882-3303.
