The remains of what are believed to be those of an adult male were recovered in Wynne yesterday [Sunday, November 28th] by Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division.

A local resident walking near 503 Front Street about 3 PM reported to Wynne police officers seeing a body in a shallow drainage ditch between Front and Ash Streets.

Authorities in the Wynne Police Department have requested the state police to lead the investigation associated with the death.

The remains were transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory where the identity of the deceased will be determined, as well as the manner, cause, and time of death.
