Laclede County sheriff believes body found in wooded area reported missing man

LEBANON, Mo. — Detectives are trying to find out how a 62 year old man died in Laclede County. His body was found behind a home just outside of Lebanon this weekend.

The sheriff is calling the circumstances suspicious after the remains were discovered just on the northwest edge of town in the 1500 block of Brice Street. And investigators say they have a pretty good idea of who the body belongs to.

“If it is the person that the working theory is based on then they have been missing since the 15th of April,” said Laclede County Sheriff David Millsap. “Now it wasn’t brought to our attention until the 6th of May.”

If it is who Millsap thinks it is, the 62 year old man may have been trying to lay low.

“This person at that time had a warrant for their arrest also. So it is

Suspicious death reported in Ponte Vedra Beach – FirstCoastNews.com WTLV

NOCATEE, Fla. — A man and a woman were found dead inside a home in Nocatee, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say a family member and an acquaintance found the bodies inside the home in the 200 block of Southern Oak Drive Saturday morning. 

They were trying to check on the homeowner, Lynn Bender, after not hearing from her for days. Neighbors told First Coast News Bender and a man were found dead inside the home.

Neighbor Nicolas Romano said he had texted Bender earlier in the week to walk their dogs together.

“Maybe Thursday or Friday we would let them play together, because they really got on, so that was the last time I had any communication with her,” he said.  “On Wednesday.”

Another neighbor, Jane Amorim, said Bender was afraid of a former boyfriend.

“But only for a brief while,” Amorim said, “so I thought it was odd that he

Neighbors still baffled by death of NW Portland man reported stabbed in the doorway of home

Police have yet to identify a man reportedly found stabbed and unconscious in the doorway of his Northwest Portland home five days ago and won’t say whether there’s an ongoing public safety threat. Mail carriers discovered the man.

Neighbors have told The Oregonian/OregonLive they remain rattled by the suspicious death along the quiet block in Linnton.

NH death first reported as suspicious turned out to be natural

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) New Hampshire authorities say the death of a woman at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center initially described as suspicious turned out to be the result of complications of disease and her manner of death was natural.

Authorities said Susan Massey, 67, of East Corinth, Vermont, was receiving treatment at the medical center when she died on Jan. 27.

Local and state police and the attorney general’s office were notified. The attorney general’s office said in a news release Tuesday that it is not unusual for each agency to regularly receive reports of witnessed or unattended deaths that cannot quickly and easily be identified as a natural, accidental or suicidal death.

It said “the agencies were initially informed that there were concerns about the circumstances of Ms. Massey’s death,” leading to an investigation.
