Sheriff: Body found near Mayetta

MAYETTA (KSNT) — Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says his agency is investigating the discovery of a body northeast of Mayetta Wednesday morning.

Morse says deputies responded to the 16000 block of R.4 Road after receiving a call to conduct a “welfare check”.

An employer told dispatchers that an employee had not been seen for nearly two weeks and requested that deputies try to make contact with the person at the employee’s home.

Morse says the body was found about 100 yards from the residence near a creek bed.

No names have been released yet and the body has been sent to Frontier Forensics in Kansas City for autopsy and positive identification.
