KELLOGG, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have identified a man whose body was found last week in a burning ditch in rural central Iowa.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says the body is that of 44-year-old Michael Williams, of Grinnell.
His body was found after authorities were called around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday for a fire in a ditch near Kellogg. Officials responded and quickly extinguished the flames, then found Williams' body.
Police have not given any information on how Williams died, but have declared his death a homicide.
