Deputies with the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department have confirmed that they are conducting a death investigation where they say an adult male was found deceased Wednesday evening by residents of a property located along the 200 W Block of County Road 600 North about two miles north of Jasper.
Just after 6:15 pm deputies responded to the scene where they say the male who has yet to be identified had been located near a lake on the property and say he was obviously deceased. The investigation is ongoing and is pending an autopsy and toxicology testing.
A release from the sheriff’s department says the death is not believed to be criminal in nature and no foul play is suspected at this time.
