Body Found In Pond Near Talihina

It was announced Tuesday that a homicide investigation is now in process after the body of a young man was discovered by authorities.  According to Sheriff Rob Seale, the body of a white male dressed in jeans and a T-shirt was found Monday west of Talihina in a pond in approximately three inches of water.

It is believed by deputies that the body may be that of a 19 yr-old man who went missing from the Talihina area last week.

According to a statement that was released, the name is not being released until positive identifi- cation is made and relatives are notified.

The sheriff's office said the body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office to be identified and to determine cause of death.  Seale said the cool temperatures and temperature of the water had a profound affect on the decomposition of the body.

Anyone with any information regarding the man's death is asked to call the LeFlore County Sheriff's office.
